Readability concerns how easily or comfortably a typeset text reads. Studies of readability suggest that our ability to read is based on recognition of individual glyph forms (“parallel letterwise recognition”), performed by the human brain’s highly-developed shape cognition facility. Text set in lower case is found to be more readable, presumably because lower case letter structures and word shapes are more distinctive, having greater saliency with the presence of extenders (ascenders, descenders and other projecting parts). Readers cognize the upper portions of letters more than the lower portions in the recognition process. (Georgia)
