OverDrive App with Dyslexic Font Option

OverDrive recently introduced a couple of new font options for readers with dyslexia: OpenDyslexic and OpenDyxlesic Bold. I took a couple of screenshots from a book I'm currently reading in my OverDrive app on my iPad mini so you can see the difference. The first one is in Palatino font:

The second image is in OpenDyslexic font:

It's good to see that the e-reading experience is becoming more accessible for everyone.
