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 (November 2023 update: Source).

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.
