Hi, Mary. Most fonts people regularly use don't cause any problems, but at
least for me, I've messed around with the fonts a little just to see what
would happen, and there are some that didn't read well. Like I said, most of
them aren't a problem...probably not even enough to worry about, but some
don't read well...or at least they didn't for me. Take care.

Are you sure that there is a problem with fonts and screen readers? Clearly,
those horrid cursive-looking fonts are an ocr nightmare, and I'd like to see
them banned from books, at least those I want to scan. <smile>
But I have never heard of a particular fancy font or script-wanna-be font
causing a problem for a screen reader. Font size can be a problem, if its
really large or really small. I've definitely heard of that, and I think it
to do with lines and what the screen readers expect with respect to spacing,
but I'm honestly not sure. Anyway, I'm not saying a screen reader wouldn't
have the problem you describe. but I've never heard anybody
complain about it.
