Use a serif font

Serif fonts (fonts with small line extending from the top and bottom) are much easier to read on a computer screen. Use serif fonts if possible. Here is a list of some common serif fonts -

  • Century Schoolbook
  • Courier
  • Times New Roman
  • Georgia

If possible, refrain from using monospaced fonts like Courier as these fonts are difficult to read.
