I may be slow to respond, so here are some answers to the most common questions:
What is your turn-around time?
About a week. Not always, but it's my goal.

OpenDyslexic comes in Regular, Bold, Italic, Bold-Italic and Monospace. The Regular, Bold, Italic, Bold-Italic styles also come in a version with an alternate, rounded ‘a’.
Attribution is not required anymore.
Yes. OpenDyslexic may be used in any commercial product. OpenDyslexic is available for use in commercial products at no cost to the developer or company.
In Windows, drag the font files to C:WindowsFonts.In MacOS, drag the font files to FontBook.In many Linux Distros, search the package manager for “open-dyslexic” or “opendyslexic”.
On your jailbroken iPhone/iPad, search “open-dyslexic” in Cydia.On your rooted Android device, you can use an application like Font Installer to replace your system fonts with OpenDyslexic.You can also install OpenDyslexic as a selectable font using Apple Configurator or an app that can install fonts to iOS in iOS versions 7 and higher.
Yes. Email me details. But try your language in OpenDyslexic before submitting a request. There have been many requests to include included characters.
No, and I wouldn’t imagine it would. It works for a significantly large amount to warrant continued work on OpenDyslexic. Some people like Comic Sans, Gill Dyslexic (come back to us), or Verdana more. OpenDyslexic is another option that can be used if it helps you.
There are two versions of OpenDyslexic in the download. OpenDyslexic-Alta includes the handwritten/rounded/comic sans like/circle ‘a’ that you may like. This was contributed by Rob Carpenter (you can thank him on Twitter: @DJToadie).
As far as I know, there are no large formal studies conducted on OpenDyslexic. However, there exist studies on features that have been incorporated into OpenDyslexic. I’m listing these here: TBAThere have been small studies, but the tend to be a toss-up because of size or other items. I intend to list both positive and negative studies, as I have time.
OpenDyslexic was initially trialed with a group of dyslexic friends, and frequently adjusted until its public release in December 2011. It is still continually updated and refined based on feedback from others.OpenDyslexic 3 & Mono were designed from scratch, to allow for using the SIL-OFL license, and make adjustments based on studies since 2011.
Can this cure Dyslexia?
Can we make this the default font for everything?
OpenDyslexic is not intended to cure dyslexia at all. It’s intended to be a help. Similar to how some may hold an index card to a book, highlight lines of text, increase text size, use a colored plastic to reduce contrast on a page, OpenDyslexic is intended to be an another help.
OpenDyslexic does not infringe on any intellectual property.
OpenDyslexic was created using BitStream Vera Sans as a starting point.
Don Steinberg of WilmerHale has chosen to provide pro bono support for OpenDyslexic. They have analyzed both typefaces, and have concluded that there is no infringement on the intellectual property of Dyslexie. The creator of Dyslexie was contacted and asked to provide proof of his claim. It has been several months, and he has not responded.
