Ease of reading

I am a big advocate of using research to improve our daily lives. Some research is tangible, such as the invention of a device or machine that you can buy and use, but others is less so.

A recent piece of research was completed by Shaver-Troup where she found that the font that some text is written in has a measurable impact on how easy it is to read. With Thomas Jockin’s help, she created a font named Lexend which is easier to read. I am now using that on this site to make it easier to read.

Download the Lexend font for your own use, and post in the comments if you would like me to explain how to add it to a WordPress or non-WordPress site.
