I am trying to track down information on the distance from an LCD screen where text of a given size would still be legible.

I realise that eye sight, font size, lighting and lots of other factors play into this, but I'm hoping someone knows of some general guidelines they can link to.
For some additional context: I am trying to calculate the distance that text announcements on a particular public LCD screen system could be expected to be read from. An image of the screen is here
. The announcement text in the lower, red, strip of the display is the part I'm interested in. Assuming that the font is 3-4 inches high, from what distance would this be legible.
