Format pages using the OpenDyslexic font and low contrast help


Open-Dyslexic is an open sourced font created to increase readability for readers with dyslexia. This extension overrides all fonts on web pages with the OpenDyslexic font, and formats pages to be more easily readable.

Your brain can sometimes do funny things to letters. OpenDyslexic tries to help prevent some of these things from happening. Letters have heavy weighted bottoms to add a kind of "gravity" to each letter. You are able to quickly figure out which part of the letter is down because of this feature. It aids in recognizing the correct letter and sometimes helps to keep your brain from rotating them around. Consistently weighted bottoms can also help reinforce the line of text. The unique shapes of each letter can help prevent confusion by flipping and swapping.

Open-Dyslexic has recently received favourable coverage from the BBC ( and is included in many iOS and Android apps.

Unlike much other dyslexia or DRD typefaces, OpenDyslexic is completely free for individuals, companies, schools, and in short: everyone.

This is life changing for neurodivergent folks. My entire family is ND. My mother and brother have dyslexia & dyscalculia, my dad and I have ADHD, and possibly autism spectrum disorder. This helps me concentrate and comprehend what I am reading. Thank you for making this!

I'm crying it makes things so easy to read normally reading on y computer gives me headaches and is so frustrating to do. I wish this worked in docs but it makes reading things so easy this is the best

This is great. Im going to request that my works IT add it to their catalogue so I can use it there too. I just wish i could use it on my phone too.

Love this. I can finally read!! I do wish there was a font size option, the Chrome settings don't seem to change it. A little smaller and it'd be perfect!

This extension is okay.. And it has some flaws. Like #1, it does not work on google docs, and when you close the extension it turns into regular text again. So its really wasting my time. Anyways, I gave this extension a 4/5 because people really seem to like it and it does work on other websites. I am also not really a fan of open dyselxic, but the font is kind of cool i guess. thankyou.
