A study has shown that changing the font to one more suited to a particular person leads to a 35% increase in reading speed while maintaining comprehension. It also turns out that people don’t always know which font suits them best: personal preference wasn’t necessarily related to reading speed.

In the study, a group of 352 participants aged between 18 and 71 were given the task of reading text on their personal devices. 16 commonly used fonts on the web, newspapers and PDFs were tested.

In the future, scientists hope to create tools to help people choose an individual font.
