New font promotes better recall

Australian researchers from the RMIT University in Melbourne have developed a new font – Sans Forgetica – that makes it easier for people to remember information they have read.

Sans Forgetica is a new font designed to promote better memory retention.

The font was created by a multidisciplinary team of designers and behavioural scientists from and has been designed using the principles of cognitive psychology. Essentially it works by leaving gaps in each letter, which forces people to read more slowly and to fill in those gaps in their minds, in turn ensuring they are likely to recall what they have been reading.

It’s an OpenType font and is compatible with both Mac and PC computers and there’s a Chrome extension available.

You can try Sans Forgetica for yourself with a free download from the RMIT site here.
