I couldn't figure out whether it's for sale or license or where to get it, or even if it is available. I think there's a book, although what the relation is between the book and the website and the typeface is a mystery. The copyright notice at the bottom is completely illegible.

Asunto: read regular - typeface for dyslexics

spotted this whilst trawling some design sites:
" Read Regular is 
a typeface designed specifically to help people with dyslexia read 
and write more effectively. "
It certainly looks a bit better than Comic Sans, but I'm wondering
whether the design of the site itself is not actually working against
the audience it tries to target (patterned background that hurts even
my eyes).
Any views ?
