Lexia Readable was designed for maximum legibility, an attempt to capture the strength and clarity of Comic Sans without the comic book associations. Features like the non-symmetrical b and d, and the handwritten forms of a and g may help dyslexic readers. In 2013, many more accented characters were added to each weight to complete the Latin Extended-A range.
The Regular and Bold weights can be used freely without a licence by educational and charitable institutions as well as by individuals. Two licensed packages are also available – the Basic Family which includes Italic and Bold Italic, and the Heavy package which includes a Heavy Outline version.
