Content Readability is Essential
(Page 1 of 3 )

There are many elements of readability that require consideration.
Font choices (both in size and actual font) can have an impact on readability. For instance, research has demonstrated that fonts lacking serifs outperform fonts with serifs. This revelation runs contrary to the long-held understanding that fonts utilizing serifs speed reading.
