Modelling character legibility  (1989)
Abstract Header
The process by which humans distinguish visually between letters of the alphabet is a matter of considerable theoretical and practical interest. On the theoretical side, it is a classical problem in psychology, and has served as a test case for numerous theories of feature analysis and pattern recognition. On the practical side, it is relevant to the effective design of any textual display. Furthermore, principles discovered in the study of letter recognition may generalize to the perception of other types of displayed information.
