Your eyes constantly scan the text in front of you to determine patterns from symbols to form meaningful relationships. Whether you have a low vision disability, a reading disorder, or no impairment at all, you can have the following problems reading text depending on font choice and spacing:

  • recognizing character patterns due to font family (typeface) choice
  • recognizing separate characters due to proximity and font family choice
  • recognizing words putting all the characters together

With character location, spacing, and font choice all put together, you can have some confusing—if not embarrassing—results.

Poor Font Example: Invite

The text should read: "We Cordially Invite You To Sandra's Retirement Party. Tarts & Drinks. Please RSVP. Thank You Pouches Provided to All Guests."
