They’re packs: for example, Gill Sans and 124 other fonts.

Am I missing something here? Aachen is only 2 fonts. Pretty pricy for getting Aachen medium, considering I have multiple licenses for Aachen Bold, since it was frequently given as a bonus with Adobe software back in the day.

If for some reason you're stuck with having to pay for something like Aachen, well you're gonna have to pay up the wazoo!

That's only for Linotype's Aachen. Apparently a lot of foundries seem to have this font, and for a lot cheaper.

Also, the list has been updated.

Aachen Medium, as shown on the page you linked to, seems to be ‘Not for sale here’. Aachen Bold is offered as a part of either a ‘OpenType Classics Collection Value Pack’ containing 125 fonts ($949 = $7.60 per font) or a ‘Linotype Essentials™ 1 Value Pack’ containing 134 fonts ($999 = $7.45 per font).

If you want to make a comparison, try to compare the prices per font.

Dyslexie

Hard to find a reliable price on this one. The closest I can find is €455.

A good question is how many actual fonts are in the TEFF families?

I knew there was a major reduction in the price of the Dyslexie font, passing by their web site some time ago, but this is good news. Unfortunately, it may be symptomatic of bad news - while the Dyslexie font was roundly criticized by many in this forum, it's still bad news when a tool that could help people with a disability is not being used - at least, when something better is not available.

There is no evidence that supports this proposition, and some against.

> - at least, when something better is not available.

There are many typefaces available that it is reasonable to expect to perform better than Dyslexie, for the average dyslexic. Lucida Sans/Grande, FF Unit, Source Sans, Myriad, Frutiger....
