the good life in a digital age

the text size game

RNIB training seems to include lots of gentle games and quizzes. Our sight loss training included a game that went as follows:

  • Give participants the same information printed in different fonts sizes.
  • Ask them to answer a question about the information
  • Give the first person to answer correctly a metaphorical pat on the back (they need sweets here)

(it was more interesting than it sounds)

The idea being that you very quickly get what font sizes are easy to read. And therefore understand why all RNIB information is printed in 14 point and at first looks screamingly ‘loud’.
