Abstract:Reading errors like switching letters is a persistent characteristic of errors for dyslectics (Braams, 2001). This type of error can be explained by the magnocellular theory (Stein, 2001; Stein, Talcott, & Walsh, 2000). The font “Dyslexie” is developed to increase the reading accuracy and readability of texts for dyslectics, so that the errors by switching letters are reduced.
