Readability is how easy it is to read words, phrases, blocks of copy such as a book, a web page or an article. Legibility is a measure of how easy it. Legibility refers to how a typeface is designed and how well one individual character can be distinguished from another.

Let’s talk legibility first. Legibility refers to how a typeface is designed and how well one individual character can be distinguished from another. For the sake of this article, I’ll talk a bit about both, suggesting some specific techniques to improve your typography.

Legibility. Legibility is concerned with type design, the visual shape of type characters. Legibility is the “speed with which a type character can be identified”. Legible type is large enough and distinct enough for a reader to discriminate individual words and / or letters / characters.

For example: For legibility context is everything.

This may be used to increase legibility for an entire magazine article. Kerning is the reduction of space between characters, and letterspacing is the addition of space between characters.

These smaller, precise adjustments may be used to tweak a specific word, such as in a logo design, or a large headline of a story in a newspaper. But while reading a book, where there are a lot of words in a texture and type is set in a much shorter viewing arc, the bouma model fits best.

So serifs, in large chunks of text, have several advantages over sans: letters are “fused” together, the word shape has variety, white-space vs.

rythym has diversity, and so on. If we interpreted the data in terms of the Smith () recommendation for English characters, the mean character height for Chinese characters should be min of arc at the 50% limit of legibility, min of arc for over 90% legibility and min of arc for % legibility.

Typographers believe that large counters are an aid to character recognition. A byproduct of open counters is usually a large lowercase x-height. As long as the x-height is not excessively large, this can also improve legibility.

The ease with which a character or a symbol on the display is identified can be understood as its legibility (Humar & Gradis, ). Poor legibility can increase reading times and thus decrease.

A standard typographical measurement equal to 1/12 of a pica or 1/72 of an inch. R Readability. Readability refers to the ease with which a block of text can be scanned by eye.

S Serif. A flare or terminating flourish at the end of a letterform's strokes, believed to originate from the Roman tendency to paint letters onto marble before.The process of improving appearance and legibility by adjusting the white space between certain paired characters, such as 'Ty', 'To', or 'Ye', which are known as "kerning pairs." Manual kerning allows the desktop publisher to move letters either closer or farther apart ~o .The width of each character is known as the 'set width'.

This spans the body of the letter, plus the space that acts as a buffer between one letterform and the next. The most common method used to measure type is the point system, which dates back to the 18th century.

One point is 1/72 inch. 12 points make one pica, a unit used to measure.
