Whether on smartphones, tablets or eReaders, texts can be optimally reproduced on-screen with the aid of eText fonts. In the past, it was difficult to present text in a suitable form on screens with small dimensions. For this reason, fonts have been modified so that even in small point sizes they remain clearly legible, thus making sure that reading is no longer strenuous or tiring.
This has been achieved with the help of the technique known as “font hinting”. This means that information is supplied on the number of pixels required to display each character in the best legible form on low resolution screens. In addition, line thicknesses have been emphasized manually and x-heights have been marginally adjusted. The open counters present in letters such as C, c, e, S, s, g etc. have been slightly expanded so that these retain their character even in small point sizes. Many typefaces, including numerous classics, are already available as eText fonts while others are continuously being added.
