As a follow-up from the wonderful Universal Design workshop sponsored by the Diversity and Information Literacy Collaborative I just stumbled across this interesting video about Dyslexie, a typeface that has decreased reading errors for dyslectics.  You can read more about their project out of the University of Twente at: http://www.studiostudio.nl/en/project-dyslexie/

Renske de Leeuw's thesis explaining the research and conclusions can be found at: http://essay.utwente.nl/60474/1/MA_thesis_R_Leeuw.pdf

More research into typeface is needed as just one component for universal design, however I think it has many implications for libraries from the printing process, instructional handouts, tutorial and web design to marketing efforts.
