Take The Reading Test That Shows You What It’s Like To Be Dyslexic

London designer Dan Britton has created a typeface that's intentionally difficult to read to simulate the problems faced by people with dyslexia.

Dan Britton feels that there is not enough awareness of the specific problems dyslexics encounter when reading text.

Using Helvetica as a base, the Dyslexia font removes around 40 per of the typeface's lines.

The aim is to make the average reader take their time when attempting to decipher the letters in the words and sentences.

According to Britton, while it isn't based on hard science, the typeface slows down someone reading it to the speed of someone with dyslexia reading normal font.

Can you read the 'dyslexic font'?
