One study, Good Fonts for Dyslexia
<http://dyslexiahelp.umich.edu/sites/default/files/good_fonts_for_dyslexia_study.pdf>
is
review in Dyslexia the Gift Blog
<http://blog.dyslexia.com/good-fonts-for-dyslexia-an-experimental-study/#.UtRUdFVX_Ww>
and
it suggests,  " Based on their findings, the researchers
recommended Helvetica, Courier, Arial, Verdana and Computer Modern, based
both on reading performance and subjective preference; and cautioned
against the use of italic texts." There are also several "monospace fonts"
in docs which might help make reading easier.

Will upvote having the option to add OpenDyslexic to docs.
