Read Regular
Designed to assist dyslexic readers, Read Regular is a typeface designed by Dutch designer Natascha Frensch. Letterforms like b and d are typically drawn as the same character and then just swapped. Read Regular differentiates these forms by making each unique.

    Where’s the research?

    I have been looking for some proof that this face works but can not find any testing at all. This face makes a pretty big claim without having research to back it up.

    I like this font, it’s very calming/relaxing on the eyes and easy to read. I especially like the b and d as a strategy to avoid letter reversal. I’m dyslexic and a teacher, Im very interested in gettin this font. Is it for sale?

    Hi Sue,

    Last time I checked it wasn’t available. You can always check in with Natascha Frensch, the designer.
