Nothing About Us, Without Us!
anyone know of a pdf reader that lets me change the font (wanna change it to open dyslexia for my autism) or that in general makes things more acessible?
What you should look for is an epub program that allows you to change font (I know Sumatra PDF off the top of my head). If you can highlight the text in a PDF, the font can be changed when it is converted to epub. If the PDF is essentially an image scan, then there’s nothing you can do.
To change the font in Sumatra PDF, click settings in the menu bar, then advanced options. A .txt file will pop up. Scroll or ctrl+f to find the font. Once you’ve found it, enter the exact name, hit save on the text editor, and open the file in Sumatra PDF.
I tried downloading a font to see if it worked with those. Put it with the other fonts. On windows, this is C:\Windows\Fonts. I ran into an issue where the font I downloaded displayed GregorianFLF Medium as the name, but the font name when I opened the file was GregorianFLF. The program responded to GregorianFLF but not GregorianFLF Medium. Whether it’s a font that came with your operating system or a downloaded font, make sure you have the correct name or it will display the default font setting instead.
This is such a serious problem! Child welfare laws across the U.S. allow children to be taken from their parents because their parents are considered “unfit” due to a disability. Not negligence, abuse, etc. - just blindness or paralysis or autism.
