    Year 12 student Connor is blind. This is how he will sit his HSC

    While most students will take a few pens, a bottle of water and a calculator into their HSC exams alongside their peers, Arndell Anglican College student Connor McLeod has a different set-up.

    "I tend to use about three desks to myself," the year 12 student said. 

    Connor McLeod is a trailblazer for the visually impaired, completing French and maths exams.

    Connor is blind and sits alone with a supervisor in a private room. He has a braille booklet containing questions, a laptop, headphones and his BrailleSense Polaris device – a tablet that functions as a calculator for maths and business studies and as a translator for French.

    Dyslexie Font on ADCET

    October is Dyslexia Awareness month and over the next four weeks ADCET will be using the Dyslexie font as the default font on the website. From November onwards, website visitors will then have the option to choose between the normal font and the Dyslexie font - font options can be found in the top right-hand side of the website.

    Christian Boer, the creator of Dyslexie font, has been affected by dyslexia for as long as he can remember. His experience inspired him to design a solution to improve readability for people with dyslexia. Christian combined his graphic design skills with his dyslexia, abandoning traditional typeface design rules, favouring instead the user needs of a dyslexic person. The result? The Dyslexie font.
