This WordPress plugin allows registered users to enable the OpenDyslexic font on your site. This free open source font, which is also being used at this page, is designed to help people with dyslexia read more easily. After activation this plugin adds an extra option to the profile page, where registered users can choose to use the OpenDyslexic font on the website and/or within the admin, or not at all.
This plugin was originally designed for the dutch flash fiction website 120w.nl. I am not dyslexic myself, nor have I developed the OpenDyslexic font.
