Golexia Tackles Dyslexia Friendly Typefaces.

Golexia Tackles Dyslexia Friendly Typefaces.

 

‘Dyslexia Friendly Typefaces’, what are they?

Text needs to be readable – that’s a given – but if you have reading difficulties or visual perception problems, some of the typefaces that are being used every day by advertisers and designers are not ‘dyslexia friendly’. Golexia, in conjunction with Gimlett-Taylor Design, is researching this with the intention of developing a suitable typeface that will be used for all our documentation, correspondence and advertising. The background to the research has already been completed, by means of critical analysis of aesthetics and function and we are now at the stage of investigating the dyslexia-friendly typefaces currently available to the general public. As an example, Natascha Frensch’s ‘Read Regular’ typeface and K-type’s ‘Lexia Readable’ have been developed in order to address some of the issues around readability.

There is always scope for further development and this is where we come in. The aim is to examine what it is about the architecture of the characters that make up the alphabet that may be contributing to reading difficulties, such as dyslexia and other splds, and remove these obstacles.
