Dyslite for OpenDyslexic

Dyslite for OpenDyslexic converts the font on all web pages to OpenDyslexic, an open-source font type that many people with dyslexia have found easier to read than traditional typefaces (but you already know that!)

Dyslite was designed to be a very light plugin so that it would not interfere with the load times on web pages. Once you have the Dyslite plugin installed and enabled, text on webpages loaded by your web browser are automatically and instantly converted into your dyslexia-optimized web font of choice (we currently offer OpenDyslexic, Mono Dyslexic, and Gill Dyslexic). Just install it once you’ll never have to worry about it again. But it’ll always be behind the scenes, working to help you read faster and more efficiently.

You can learn more about the Dyslite plugin and supported font types at http://dyslite.com.

  3. This could be accomplished with a user script or usercss instead of using an $8 app.


    • Hi NoBigGGovDuh,

      The difference here is that Dyslite is a commercially supported app. If you know how to do this on your own, and don’t mind the lack of support, yes, a usercss, or even the OpenDyslexic extension I wrote is always an option.
      The guys at Dyslite told me they provide support for what they sell, and I’m sure the small $8 charge covers their time in writing this, plus their time spent on support.

    I’m currently writing a mobile app very similar to this one. Only, i’m using OCR to allow conversion of any writing, anywhere. Going to try to add as many dyslexic font options as possible…. Also, it’ll be free….
