Fixing through fonts

Who could imagine? I'd like to shake the hand of the person who captured the requirements. Curious how well it works. I never understood how comic sans was supposed to make reading more approachable, but if their numbers about dyslexics are true, this def will.

What's interesting to me is that I find this font harder to read than most fonts.

I posted from my phone, so I didn't quite put the right graphic.  I've posted the direct link to the video.  I find it harder to read too, which is why I was fascinated with it.  Maybe it's only easier to read for dyslexics, but harder for those of us who aren't?  

Now if they'd just come up with a font that worked for Microsoft license keys.  I think they make it purposefully unreadable to foil both automated agents and people alike!
