This short video contains testimonials from people who have used Friendly Type for various applications. Enjoy!
Why? Because it works the way your eyes work.
The one and only rule to follow when reading in Friendly Type is to READ DOWN, cluster by cluster.
Friendly Type re-formats words into short clusters. You read the clusters down the page, rather than across. The shape of the clusters conform to the circular shape of your vision.
Friendly Type makes it easier for you to read each cluster with less eye movement, you will be less apt to lose your place and your eyes will be less tired. You will also avoid reading unrelated words from the line above or below.
Friendly Type allows you to absorb and retain information more easily. Reading words in clusters makes it easier to feel the passion of the writer. Each cluster represents a "thought group," words that are closely related grammatically, usually to convey a single idea.
Friendly type enhances your comprehension while reading. When you are reading fiction or non-fiction, you are able to comprehend more points of the story because the short clusters allow you to understand each piece.
Friendly Type has many applications, from helping general readers, to enhancing speakers speeches, to allowing actors and actresses to memorize their lines more efficiently than with normal scripts and in less time. It has also been known to help readers with dyslexia, ADHD, beginning readers and those studying to learn the English language.
