Illegible and legible typefaces vastly differs across the spectrum. In majority of the cases, however, the way the typeface manifests itself on the page or on the screen is to serve the purposes of aesthetic or to facilitate a seamless reading experience.
The Braille Institute looks beyond this with the ‘Atkinson Hyperlegible’ -- a new legible typeface that is made with those with serious visual impairment in mind. It is optimized with "intricacies and details" that are meant to resonate and be of use to those who experience difficulty.
The legible typeface was created in partnership with Applied Design Works -- a design firm that was tasked with reimagining the identity of the Braille Institute.
