I was wondering if it would be possible in Canvas to have an option, maybe in Settings, for anyone who is using it, to change the display of the overall font to the Dyslexie font? Like the general display / UI in Canvas?
Or, for someone to have the option to change the Canvas display font to font that dyslexic folks have an easier time reading? Currently, the Canvas site has a sans serif font, which seems to be preferable for dyslexic folks. Maybe looking in to if there are other fonts that are also helpful?
Maybe there could be 3 to 5 different fonts to choose from?
Here are a couple links to information about why the Dyslexie font was designed. It was designed by a dyslexic person, Christian Boer. The video link below is a TED talk, by Christian. It greatly expanded upon my very base knowledge of dyslexia. He does a great job talking about how dyslexia works, why most fonts are difficult for dyslexic folks to read, and how his font helps people.
