Thanks John for two excellent tips. I'll pass them on - both my kids are dylexic.


We could do with something in the 'How To...' lists, for Accessibility Tips. Maybe you could suggest it. I did put a suggestion in the Contribute forum ages ago about the 'How To..' intructions being unnecessarily 'wordy' - I think bullet points are easier to follow - but it didn't get enough support for anything to happen.





Tip - Giffgaffers show appreciation for someone's posting by clicking on 'kudos', or if they've solved your query you can click on 'best answer' to reward them even more! So if someone's helped, let them know!

Hi Guys,

Here's another font that I am now using which I am finding so easy to read


Segoe Print Regular


The way I would describe it is that my eyes flow over the lines of text instead of it feeling all jittery & jumpy as I read, like riding on a piece of nicely re-surfaced road.


Here's a download link ...


Please pass this on to anyone you know that is, or have children that are, dyslexic

Thanks for the tip. 


I always like to hear new ideas to make my life simpler.


recently i've started making "weemee" characters for entries in my phone book so that i can look at the pictures rather than the names for a similar reason.
