    You should try working in a school where Comic Sans is their "corporate font" ..

    But, it is a lot better than anything with tails on (Times New Roman etc .. I mean, what is with that font .. or more to the point, why do people who use it only insist on doing so at 10pt or less?)

    Interesting question - I dealt with Herts CC's visual impairment unit a while ago, and they told me that comic sans was a good font to use due to its clarity and also as it uses a shape for 'a' similar to that which you'd write with a pen - for example, look at a lower case 'a' in Arial or Times New Roman and then in Comic Sans.

    If you search 'comic sans visual impairment' you'll find a fair few supporting websites, for example the British Dyslexia Association (Dyslexia Style Guide- About Dyslexia- The British Dyslexia Association).

    Other sans serif fonts are available ;-)

    Comic Sans was NOT designed as a typeface but as a solution to a problem with the often overlooked part of a computer program's interface, the typeface used to communicate the message.
    Connare: Art, design & typography:Type Designs:Comic Sans

    Comic Sans may be easier to read than others, but it is not a professional type face (of which there are many that are easy to read for people with dyslexia).
