Where We Share Expertise and Science
Our goal is to enable dyslexics to read literature, and other digital and printed content, with more ease and enjoyment. To achieve this at a high standard and offer valuable solutions we continually invest in scientific research and test our tools.
- We are focused on increased readability which is guided by relevant scientific research about font and dyslexia
- Each tool has its roots in science. It is really important to us that we keep offering valuable assistance and enjoyable experience
- Every tool we develop and every information we publish was verified by experts who work with dyslexics everyday
OmoType Performs Better Than Other Fonts for Dyslexia
Our speech therapist carried out tests in cooperation with Dyxy, regional association for children and young people who are manifesting difficulties in reading and writing. Just one version of OmoType was tested on a group of 15 children with dyslexia aged 10 to 14. Other fonts used in this testing are Dyslexie font, Times New Roman and Arial.
Children with dyslexia read faster, made fewer mistakes, and most importantly preferred OmoType more compared to other fonts.
Our R&D Partners – the Laboratory for Psycholinguistic Research
At the Faculty of Education and Rehabilitation Sciences, our solutions are getting validated and results help us gain better understanding of dyslexia. The last research on OmoType (only one version) with an eye tracker was done with a group of 4th graders. Results show that children use the least mental effort to read with OmoType compared to other fonts used in research. This conclusion is based on the shortest time of fixations recorded with OmoType.
The next step is to extend current testing of the type with other versions of Omotype and other fonts for dyslexia. Our goal is to improve existing tools and create new ones. For that, we also monitor several parameters in the app to analyze how dyslexics use Omoguru Reader.
