WEBCAST APR 5 – A11yNYC – Accessible Typefaces, Fonts, and Text: Optimizing the reading experience – Jared Smith

On Tuesday April 5 2022 at 7:30pm-8:30pm EDT (23:30-00:30 UTC) the Accessibility NYC Meetup (A11yNYC) hosts an online meetup ‘Accessible Typefaces, Fonts, and Text: Optimizing the reading experience‘. Typefaces, fonts, and text styling can have a significant impact on the user experience — and there are few accessibility guidelines that relate to text accessibility. Jared Smith of WebAIM will provide an overview of how reading is processed in the human mind, and how to minimize the cognitive effort and maximize the visual accessibility of online text.

The meetup will be webcast live via a partnership with the Internet Society New York Accessibility SIG
