#OmegaWiki supports #OpenDyslexic

#OmegaWiki aims to be useful as a platform. Much of its functionality is in the extension that allows us to be special. The core functionality however is provided by MediaWiki. The Universal Language Selector is an extension of MediaWiki waiting in the wings to become available on all the wikis of the Wikimedia Foundation.


Part of the ULS is the use of webfonts and, OpenDyslexic is a font available for many languages that use the Latin script. Languages like English, French, German, Dutch... The font looks odd to most people but for many people who are dyslexic it makes text actually .. readable.
