From the website:
Sans Forgetica is a font designed using the principles of cognitive psychology to help you to better remember your study notes. ... Sans Forgetica is more difficult to read than most typefaces Ė and thatís by design. The 'desirable difficulty' you experience when reading information formatted in Sans Forgetica prompts your brain to engage in deeper processing.

Years ago, I unwittingly developed a similar impediment to legibility ó my handwriting.

Fascinating, I'll have to tell my daughter this to help her study.

Very interesting.

Here's a similar effort aimed at dyslexia: https://www.dyslexiefont.com/

I didn't think this font was all that hard to read. It seemed that the patterns were readily recognized and it was easy to read.
