Font makes all the difference, Eastern Daily Press, reader comment, July 2008

The newspaper cutting, has a yellow background, then the article in 1 column which says: Font makes all the difference. BRENDA WESTON, Medeswell, Orton Malborne, Peterborough. We have a caravan at East Runton and when there we read the EDP. I was very interested in the article in EDP2 headline “A font of knowledge” regarding a typeface especially for dyslexic people. My husband is 66, severely dyslexic all his life. Two years ago he started attending special classes which helped him. When I showed him the special typeface/font, Immediately he could see and read it more easily. I hope I can obtain the font on my PC to type my husband’s homework
