Dyslexia friendly fonts..

Today I learned that Comic Sans is secretly a force for good, and should be lauded and loved as an accessibility marvel for people with dyslexia (perhaps even 15% of the population). https://www.thecut.com/2017/03/the-reason-comic-sans-is-a-public-good.html

That’s all well and good, but the hatred is real, and the font is a horror for so many historical reasons. I can’t do it. 

As a wee trial, I’ve installed the Open Dyslexic font (downloaded and then converted to web friendly formats here: https://onlinefontconverter.com/)  though, any dyslexics care to comment? It looks pretty weird to my eyes. https://www.opendyslexic.org/
