Font for better readability

http://www.lexend.com/
Google made available for Google Docs the font family Lexend, 7 fonts of scalable width designed for improve readability of written documents. Even for people affected by dyslexia.
(font is published on OFL licence)
It’s not the only one…
From 8 years is also published OpenDyslexic, which is now unclear to me the licence published.

OpenDyslexic is an open sourced font created to increase readability for readers with dyslexia. The typeface includes regular, bold, italic, and bold-italic styles, and 2 typefaces: OpenDyslexic, and OpenDyslexic-Alta. It was created to help with my reading, and is being updated continually and improved based on input from other dyslexic users. There are no restrictions on using OpenDyslexic.

I am seriously considering to use one of these font for create documentation.
My goal is to create easier to read papers/manuals/documentations, i am not aware if i am working or knowing people with dyslexia or a minor read issue; but if the document is easily readable, maybe it will reduce read effort also for people without reading disorders or that don’t know the specific language used.

I have no idea what Lexend looks like, as its page doesn’t show any examples. But OpenDyslexic is simply an awful-looking font and significantly impedes readability for non-dyslexic folks. It’s one thing to make it an option, but I’d discourage using it as a default.
