Glossary » legibility


the clarity of visually-presented text, affected for instance by the size of the text, the contrast between similar letters, the quality of printing or display (whether the text is damaged or blurred), the line-spacing and word-spacing, and the shape and style of individual letters.

Legibility is distinct from “readability”, which indicates how easy it is to understand the text, provided that it can be read.
