Re: [school-discuss] moodle site and adobe

If your son (or for others---your students) have dyslexia, you might really like this font, specifically for dyslexic people. And it's Open Source! We've put it on all our school computers, and many of the students were AMAZED at home it helped them! 

And sometimes, just printing a document out in this font makes something readable instead of unreadable.
Check it out!
