PanQuiz! uses the EasyReading font, the result of nearly a decade of studies, a font that exceeds reading barriers also for the dyslexic. EasyReading is a hybrid font, with an essential design, because it has both serif and sans-serif letters. The specific design of the letters with dedicated serif, useful in avoiding mistaking letters with similar form, has led to wider calibrated spacing that counteracts the perceived crowding effect, thus facilitating reading.
