Dyslexic fonts and Office Suites!

In the last week of my employment I discovered that there is a dyslexic font designed by a dyslexic - dyslexie - sadly not free.
https://www.dyslexiefont.com/en/typeface/
They also produce a dyslexic office suite Dyslexia Office:

But there is a similar one, opendyslexic font.
https://opendyslexic.org/
This font can be installed using the terminal - instructions on the page.

Hope this is useful for any dyslexics out there.
Just to add following info from another site I found that dyslexie font was the most preferred followed by opendyslexic font with Comic Sans coming in third place.

Well thought I would update you all - OpenDyslexic will only show on screen - you can't print it out! That is because it is an .otf font. Have tried using FontForge to change to TTF for printing but it is a no goer. You have been advised!
