New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I was just visiting the OpenDyslexic website and I noticed when I hovered my cursor over the page, a light grey semi-transparent horizontal bar appeared. A feature I have not seen before.
I’m fairly confidant it’s there to assist users with reading differences. Akin to how you used to use a ruler to help you read when you were learning.
It’s still novel to me, but I think I like it. Then again, my vision isn’t that good, and I like big, easy to read type.
a) know how this feature technically implemented? (css, html 5, Flash &c)
b) have any thoughts or feelings about it?
