Agree with Susan. FYI:



Basically, my own conclusions are that although "dyslexic fonts" sound like a good idea and may actually be effective for a few, there doesn't seem to be sufficient evidence that they make a difference for a great number people with dyslexia. Certainly not enough to justify paying money for one.

Add both. They are both free. It's just another font.

However, know that there is no research that indicates these fonts work or are helpful for people with dyslexia.
