OpenDyslexic Font Installation Guide

Symptoms of dyslexia vary, but for those who experience moving or distorted letters a new tool has been added to their arsenal recently. The font OpenDyslexic, available for free, uses carefully weighted bottom-heavy letters that may alleviate reading troubles caused by crowding. Although research indicates that these fonts offer no measurable benefit to dyslexic readers, some individuals find them helpful. 

Here is a quick guide to getting the font up and running on your computer:

  1. Download the .zip file from this link:
  2. Open the file (You will need WinZip or iZip, both free).
  3. You will see 4 font files, open one.
  4. At the top of the font window hit the ‘install’ button.
  5. Repeat for the other 3 files

You can now use the OpenDyslexic font in all your programs. You can also set your browser to use it as the default font for easy web surfing!
