OmoType Is The Most Readable Font In The World
240 different styles are designed to address the entire spectrum of dyslexia manifestations
Our typographers, science and dyslexia experts designed the type guided by relevant scientific research about font readability and dyslexia.
Font Is Designed to Improve Letter Detection and Recognition
- All letters are unified and without deformations which improve readability
- Fonts come in different weights and space sizes between letters
- Extended ascenders and descenders for reduced oscillations during reading
- Uppercase letters are emphasized so it would be easier to differentiate them with other letters
Easily Recognize Shapes and Avoid Mental Rotation
Potentially similar shapes have recognizable elements so it is easier to differentiate them. Circular shapes are designed to avoid symmetry and endings are emphasized and extended.
As dyslexia is highly individual, letters that are symmetrically opposite can be marked so a reader would avoid confusion during reading.
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.
With OmoType Use Less Mental Effort
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.
