How to publish a font

Post by Anne Hext » Fri Nov 16, 2018 2:37 pm

I have finished a font for dyslexic readers and would like to publish it on the general market. I have High-logic 11.5 and have run the optical metrics and run the kerning. and Done the legals like license etc. Is there anything else I should be checking like the tables at the back. Do I just approach Fonts.com, fontfont or similar. Any ideas and tips would be welcome right now!

I'm highly interested in your dyslexic font and how it helps readers with dyslexia since a mild case of it.

Yes I just looked at cadman font I haven't seen it before is it new? Mine has similar features for dyslexics - balanced spaces round the letters and no two letters alike and lots of extra greek and maths glyphs. Style is very different though so alls good
