Best fonts for a large print letter for reader with macular degeneration
posted by egk to Health & Fitness (9 answers total)
My MIL is 89 and has macular degeneration.
Her ability to read seems to vary from one day to the next. I write her letters (snail mail!) and she has asked me to print them in a larger font.
I've read that 16 and up is considered large print. The sample she showed me from a newsletter that works for her, seems to be printed in bold, and seems to be about size 16, so I can do that. But I don't know much about fonts.
Are certain fonts easier to read in large print? I'm pretty sure I've never used anything but the default.
