Christian Boer, 33, is a Dutch graphic designer who is dyslexic and who began developing the font in 2008 while a student at the University of Twente in the Netherlands to ‚Äúmake reading a less arduous task,‚ÄĚ according to his website. He eventually turned the project into his graduate school thesis. Independent studies demonstrated that both adults and children with dyslexia read more quickly and with fewer errors when reading documents composed with the Dyslexie font.

Apparently I have other problems other than dyslexia. I don't ["not having"] have the problem of dyslexia, at least I hope not anyway, and the "it does" [the Firefox plugin does mostly work. The FireFox behaves as advertised. If one gets tired of the font, and there's probably an easy way to turn it off, it's also quite easy to remove the plugin or any FireFox plugin. So this free version of a font to aid dyslexic people to read, looks like it does most of what the one in this article does; and the one in the article isn't free.
The above example -- isn't an example of the font talked about the free dyslexia font that can be used as an add-on in Firefox seems to function. As far as I know not having that problem, it does, and it is fairly seamless in it's functioning. Now I just need to figure out an easy way to turn it off.
This is all very good, except this particular font isn't free. If a person has dyslexia, he might try out sites for helpful fonts such as the free Firefox plugin, [URL=http://https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/opendyslexic/]]] OpenDyslexic 1.0 [/URL], from the description, "Format pages using the OpenDyslexic font and low contrast help. Open-Dyslexic is an open sourced font created to increase readability for readers with dyslexia."
