Designing legible fonts for distance reading

Publikation: Forskning - peer reviewBidrag til bog/antologi

This chapter reviews existing knowledge on distance legibility of fonts, and finds that for optimal distance reading, letters and numbers benefit from relative wide shapes, open inner counters and a large x-height; fonts should further be widely spaced, and the weight should not be too heavy or too light. Research also indicates that serifs on the vertical extremes improve legibility under such reading conditions.
