Description

Homepage - OpenDyslexic
GitHub - https://github.com/antijingoist/open-dyslexic
What is it? - OpenDyslexic is a new open source font created to increase readability for readers with dyslexia. The typeface includes regular, bold, italic, and bold-italic styles. It is being updated continually and improved based on input from dyslexic users. OpenDyslexic is free for Commercial and Personal use.
Why should it be included? - The font is included in several other distros and even in the Amazon Kindle app. I'm also not aware of any alternative that is already in the repositories. I think this package would be used by quite a lot of people.
Is it open source? - Yes (Here is the license)
Latest tarball - https://github.com/antijingoist/open-dyslexic/archive/20160623-Stable.tar.gz
