  • A Font/Typeset Designed for Readibility rather than aesthetics and/or geometric constraints
    • Measured (ie not subjective opinion) in WCPM (Words Correct Per Minute)
  • The project was started by Bonnie Shaver-Troup
  • Shaver-Troup theorized that the reading performance improves with 3 factors:
    • Character spacing creates a greater lag time and reduces potential crowding effects.
    • Expanded scaling
    • Sans-serif fonts reduces noise
  • Due to it having a github it is open source too?
    • "Stock/Vanilla" Libre Office doesn't seem to have it, Google Docs does
    • Almost must be an add-on for libre office though ( look for this later )
