You may or may not be familiar with the font Comic Sans. What you may not be familiar with are some facts about this oh-so-hated font that make it so useful for students with visual learning disabilities such as dyslexia.
Comic Sans was originally created to be used in the small speech bubbles in comic books, thus the name ‘Comic’ Sans. After its creation, a lot of businesses began using this font for serious reasons, which made the serious things look a lot less serious.
The reason this font is so useful for students with dyslexia is it’s heavy bottom and the differentiation between letters, lessening the chances of flipping.
Many smart phones give the option to change the font the phone uses, and one of the fonts is very similar to Comic Sans.
If Comic Sans is not to your liking, or simply doesn’t work for you, there are a number of other fonts that are “dyslexia approved” and are preloaded onto every computer. [Here] is a link to a list of other fonts that reduce flipping.
This is also useful from a game design and web-content creation standpoint.
If a tree falls down in a shounen anime, and you never flashback to it, did it really happen?
WHERE are they getting this stuff !!
Thank you, friend! <3 I learned everything online through the tutorials on deviantArt and tumblr, and with the help of Andrew Loomis’ books. c:
Hells yes, Andrew Loomis!
Also, a note to make to my followers and whoever else reblogs this,
Andrew Loomis is an old dead guy, who’s been dead long enough that the copyright is up on his stuff so, you can actually download all his books, legally for free.
Hi! I’m sorry, the position has been recently filled. However, I’m not opposed to having more than one learning partner! For now, though, I want to get to know and get used to just the one, and then I might adapt more later. (It’ll be easier to learn this way.)
Thank you so much for your interest, though!
chasescorner replied to your post “Please talk to me if you’re interested in learning Japanese. I learn…”
If I had the time I totally would, I’m just too flustered with school right now ;u;
That’s understandable. VuV; Thank you for considering it, though.
Please talk to me if you’re interested in learning Japanese.
I learn better when I can teach something, and when I get corrected. I’d really like a Japanese learning partner who is still a total beginner who wants to learn, so we can learn together.
I can teach you pronunciation, how to write/read Hiragana, and hopefully Katakana, how to learn Kanji, and what I know about grammar so far. And I would love to have a partner who will also learn on their own and correct me and teach me new things as well. Share resources, etc.
So if you’re interested, and you don’t know any Japanese, or you only know a little and you’re a beginner, please contact me. I’d love to add you on skype and we can learn together.
I really need a partner. し＿し
hey my old art is roaming around tumblr, neat.
Hey, remember those bloodtests I said that I got and they were going to tell the doctors that the prophecy was coming true?
Okay, those were literally not suppose to come up with anything other than the prophecy coming true, but apparently I have v high white blood cell count, and they want to see me next week.
But good news is I don’t have cancer. I’m using this to ground myself that nothing bad will be found next week.
