New Directions in Readability and Accessibility


Readability is back on the agenda at Adobe MAX this fall. In last year’s popular and well-attended sessions (One Font Doesn’t Fit All: Type Design and Comprehension and Creating Value with Personalized Readability Formats) the presenters shared research results demonstrating improvements in reading speed and comprehension using personalized reading formats. This year, Dr. Zoya Bylinskii, Research Scientist in the Creative Intelligence Lab at Adobe will lead the session and is joined by Dr. Stephanie Day, University of Central Florida, and Tianyuan Cai, Rob Haverty and Aleena Niklaus of Adobe. Join the live or virtual event to learn more about the latest developments in readability research and Adobe’s product work to deliver more effective and efficient reading experiences for readers of all ages and abilities.
