Cost

To get a reasonable set of Sasson family fonts would cost £160 for 250,000 page views. This is not a one-off payment and would need to be paid again when the page views were used up. To get the font for desktops too would be a similar additional amount.

Heinemann Primary

Heinemann Special

Basic Heinemann is defined by longer ascenders and descenders, which help children to distinguish between letters; rounded edges on all letterforms, which help the reader focus on the individual letter shape; and modified characters (eg., a and g), which ensure instant recognition of letterforms.

Heinemann Special offers further modified characters and kerning pairs ideal for dyslexic or special-needs use (eg., a, d, and b).

Only £15 for the family of three related web fonts (includes a dotted and cursive version). One time purchase for a licence allowing 10,000 page views per calendar month. The same additional fee could be paid to install the fonts on 5 teacher workstations to take advantage of contextual alternates for the cursive variant. This is where a word processor like MS Word can select the right join depending on the adjacent letters
