Font fights dyslexia

There is a new font out called Read Regular, that has the interesting goal of making it easier for dyslexic people to read. From the looks of the samples, it should be easier to distinguish a b from a d. While this font should be significantly easier to read, it would also be much harder to teach to emerging writers – making me wonder if it will be confusing for children to learn to write one font and read another. I also wonder why they didn’t make more difference between the o and 0 (letter o and zero) which I have always thought were way too similar.
