The Ukrainian language learning app "Promova," which has 11 million users, has launched a new Dyslexia Mode for people with dyslexia. This mode uses a special font called Dysfont, reduces color brightness, and incorporates multisensory learning methods.

The Dysfont font was developed by designer Martin Pisny, who was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of seven. The font addresses common reading problems such as letter switching, letter reversal, and text instability (words that tremble, move, or change shape). For example, Dysfont makes it easier to distinguish between the most common letter changes: p, q, b, and d. It also modifies uppercase and lowercase letters to make them as similar as possible, as reported by TechCrunch.

"I am grateful to Promova for being the first company in the world to implement this font. Together, we can help people with dyslexia successfully learn foreign languages," the designer noted.

Approximately 20% of people worldwide suffer from dyslexia, and up to 80% of them have difficulties with language learning. Therefore, they require individualized systems for processing information, vocabulary practice, and applying grammar rules.

There are many applications available for people with dyslexia, but Promova is the first language learning app to launch a special Dyslexia Mode.

The new Promova feature is being released just in time for World Dyslexia Awareness Day on October 6th and will be free of charge. Users can enable the dyslexia mode by going to their profile and clicking on "Settings."
