OpenDyslexic and Dyslexie are fonts which are developed specifically for dyslexic people. OpenDyslexic is a good place to start as it is a free download and works with Microsoft Office and can be added to a Kindle. This give you an idea of whether using dyslexia friendly font helps you are not.

Dyslexie precedes OpenDyslexic as a dyslexia friendly font; however, you do need to pay to use this font – don’t let that put you off. It is a slightly different form to that of OpenDyslexic and integrates better with more devices. My recommendation would be to start with OpenDyslexic then review Dyslexie later and see if it better suits your needs.

In this episode of The Dyslexia Life Hacks Show, Matt is talking to Armelle McGeachie, founder of Girls with Dyslexia.
During this podcast you will find out that Armelle had a feeling that she was dyslexic from a very young age, but did get a diagnosis until age 21. Interestingly, she had already been employing lots of dyslexic, friendly tactics that she had found through self-discovery during her time at school, particularly during her GCSEs. But having the official diagnosis allowed her to get the appropriate coaching, making her final year of university a lot easier.
