Huh. The extention is working for Chrome but my computer won't recognise it as a valid font.

Here is the link where you can download the font:
http://dyslexicfonts.com/

Red, did you copy them to your font folder? Once there, you need to right click on them and click on "install" to have them added (May require a reboot). To use them as your default font they have directions here: https://github.com/antijingoist/open-dy ... on-your-OS!

Is it just a copy and paste?

Just to say the dyslexia friendly font and browser is also available for the iPods iPads and iPhones. Supports all the new issues of it as well. Just for those who have these devices such as I do. Gonna look at it soon.

Ok. This is posted using the dyslexia browser. The fonts are bottom weighted. I actually like the look. Hmm. Maybe I have an issue?

You have to add it to the reader and the hack the books CSS code to add the font to it.

Everytime I turn around there is an arrow pointing me back towards my coding lessons.

It's not too bad. On the Sony, the path was a little funny. Here is the code I used:

Code: Select all

@font-face {font-family: sans-serif; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; 
            src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/OpenDyslexic-Regular.otf);}
@font-face {font-family: sans-serif; font-weight: normal; font-style: italic; 
            src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/OpenDyslexic-Italic.otf);}
@font-face {font-family: sans-serif; font-weight: bold; font-style: normal; 
            src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/OpenDyslexic-Bold.otf);}
@font-face {font-family: sans-serif; font-weight: bold; font-style: italic; 
            src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/OpenDyslexic-BoldItalic.otf);}

body, div, p { font-family: sans-serif; }
.calibre { font-family: sans-serif; }

No, I just forgot that you need to take the files out of the folder before installing.

I have a Polaroid tablet and the Droid I should be able to find in the app store. I need to do the code lessons because I have an app I need to design.

What language are you using? What platform are you developing for?

I've only done a couple of lessons but I have a strong idea. You want in?
