Wikipedia:Dyslexic readers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The OpenDyslexic font has been specially designed for dyslexic readers to reduce the unintentional mental movement of typographical characters. (BBC News - OpenDyslexic font gains ground with help of Instapaper) To enable the OpenDyslexic font on Wikipedia:

  1. Click the cogwheel: WMF-Agora-Settings 000000.svg
  2. Select "Fonts"
  3. Tick the box labelled "Download fonts when needed", if it is not already ticked
  4. Select "OpenDyslexic" from the dropdown
  5. Click "Apply settings"
  6. Refresh the page

To read the OpenDyslexic font properly, you may need to increase the zoom level in your web browser. In most browsers, this is done by pressing Ctrl++ (or ⌘ Cmd++ on Mac).

Alternatively if that method does not work, login or create an account and add the following code to Special:MyPage/common.css:

@font-face {font-family:OpenDyslexic;src:url('');font-weight:normal;font-style:normal;}
@font-face {font-family:OpenDyslexic;src:url('');font-weight:bold;font-style:normal;}
@font-face {font-family:OpenDyslexic;src:url('');font-weight:normal;font-style:italic;}
@font-face {font-family:OpenDyslexic;src:url('');font-weight:bold;font-style:italic;}
