{{Wiktionary|legibility}}{{For|the series of typefaces|Legibility Group}}Legibility is the ease with which a reader can recognize individual characters in text. "The legibility of a typeface is related to the characteristics inherent in its design … which relate to the ability to distinguish one letter from the other."{{Citation needed|date=February 2015}} Aspects of type design that affect legibility include "x-height, character shapes, stroke contrast, the size of its counters, serifs or lack thereof, and weight."BOOK, Type Rules: The Designer's Guide to Professional Typography, 3rd, Strizver, Ilene, 2010, John Wiley & Sons, New Jersey, 978-0-470-54251-4, 73, Legibility is different from readability. Readability is the ease with which a reader can recognize words, sentences, and paragraphs. Legibility is a component of readability. Other typographic factors that affect readability include font choice, point size, kerning, tracking, line length, leading, and justification.{{Citation needed|date=February 2015}}
