Quick Tip: Complex fonts

Simple text is much easier to recognize and read than complex fonts (such as cursive or script fonts). Use complex fonts sparingly and do not use them for long sections of text.

[JEBS’s note: People with disabilities who use Assistive Technology (AT) will frequently use customized style sheets or other software to control/change/modify layout elements like font type, color, and size to meet their specific needs. Designers need to make sure any changes they make to layout elements do not interfere with users’ AT.]
