The legibility of numerals

Publikation: Forskning - peer reviewKonferenceabstrakt til konference

When a reader encounters an illegible letter, he or she can draw on information from the neighbouring letters and from the sentence structure and thus make an educated guess as to what the letter might be. The same is not the case when the target is a number. In such situations, there is no additional help from the surrounding numbers or from the structure of the text. It is therefore essential that one number not be mistaken for another. In spite of this, there is very little relevant research on numeral legibility.

In this talk I will review existing knowledge and present the findings of a new study into the individual legibility of numerals with different skeleton structures.
