I've been working on this since the playtest was announced, and I'm finally ready to preview it. Here's a character sheet for
It's still a work in progress, but when it's finished it'll feature:

- Extra pages for spellbooks, animal companions, etc
- Minis to cut out and play
- Pages for GMs: maps, NPCs etc

Here's the second public preview:
In this case, we have a pirate monk with the dragon stance. The Pirate archetype isn't in the final book, so this is based off the playtest version combined with the official monk.
Q: When will this be available?
There's still a lot of work still to do - I only just got the book, after all. My rough goal is to get it ready by the end of 2019, but that's not a fixed deadline.
Q: Will it cost anything?
No. This is free and open source.
Q: Are you still supporting Pathfinder First Edition?
The existing character sheets for 1st Edition aren't going away, but I'm not going to be adding anything new to them either. I just don't have the time to do everything.

Are these actually for people with dyslexia? Or is that just the name?
It's just a name, but I have looked into what people with dyslexia need, and I continue to try and improve.
For example, I've looked at both the practice and the evidence for dyslexic fonts, and found both lacking. Experiments find that, even when users stated a preference for dyslexic fonts, they didn't show a notable improved reading ability.
The most important thing you can do to make life easier for dyslexic readers is simply to reduce the amount they have to read. This lines up with the approach I've taken all along. Long sections of text are broken down into punchy statements using the minimum number of words. That's good for everyone, not just for dyslexic users.
The new version of the character sheets is planned to offer two accessible modes: High Contrast, which uses strong black on white rather than subtler colours; and Large Print, which makes everything bigger (adjusting layouts and skipping elements if necessary). I may also add a Dyslexic version that turn off the all-caps styles and inverts the header colours to make them easier to read.
