Abstract

Specific fonts for people with dyslexia are designed under the assumption that text readability can benefit from decreased letter confusability. We asked university students (18-33 yr), either diagnosed with developmental dyslexia (DD= 8) or normal (N= 31) to perform several tasks on materials printed in 7 different fonts. The subjective ranking of fonts was not a strong predictor of individual performance in objective tasks
