So I've been researching something called cognitive strain. How easy it hard it is to interpret data cause increases in cognitive function or memory retention. I've been putting together some information on this, wondering if this is more popular than I realize.

slight hinting because it preserves correct width
auto-hinting can often look better than the built-in hints so experiment with forcing it
if your freetype has been compiled with ClearType anti-aliasing then enable LCD filtering (normal or light should be fine)

yes, I know
I was pointing out it had grey-scale AA as well
And vastly superior non-cleartype greyscale anti-aliasing.
just about anything is superior to ClearType
Microsoft has all the fucking patents but the result still looks like shit because they're a company of talentless hacks

the LCD filter is only needed with ClearType
freetype's own subpixel AA works differently and doesn't need it, but is disabled if you compile it with ClearType
which is why you need to check how your distro compiles freetype

Thomas Murphy

Because you're supposed to set it up yourself. They can't just give you windows fonts, and they can't distribute binaries of Freetype2 that implement ClearType® (you need to compile it yourself). Getting your shit to look good takes effort, I'm sorry you can't just have what you want without putting in the needed effort.

font rendering is surprisingly difficult, and Apple earned most of their typography credit in a time before LCD displays and their associated problems
legacy doesn't translate well into present, or, in other words, Apple used to be the leading printer company but that doesn't do anything for them now either
whichever way I look at it you're a retard spamming well-worn cliches

Julian Wright
Julian Wright

That company that considered typography so important, they transitioned their screens over to high PPI
nearly a decade before it even started to become common outside phones
It's your fault for using low PPI displays in 2019. Proper looking text is just one of many benefits.

Christian Morales

iv heard about that reasearch, but there is a countering body of evidence that sans serif is more legible.
small deviations and asymmetry also tend to make text legible - comic sans unironically being one of the better ones.
stiff, geometric, rigid forms like heletica or futura, generally worse.
modern fonts like lato, segoe or calibri generally dispense with geometric precision and focus on being legible.
