     Users may have difficulty reading small text, seeing

    small objects or targeting small icons and controls with

    a mouse.

     Small fonts can cause eye-strain and make reading

    difficult or impossible for many users.

     Screen elements with fixed sizes may be too small on

    high-resolution displays or exceed the screen size on

    small, hand-held devices.

     Text should be kept to a minimum unless the

    application includes a great deal of reference material.

    difficult and tiring.

     From a design standpoint, text should fill less than half

    the screen

    Use Appropriate Fonts

     Fonts are useful in focusing attention on certain test on

    the screen, enhancing readability, setting a tone

    (serious, lighthearted), and projecting an image

    (progressive, conservative).

     When choosing a font, always consider the objectives

    and the audience.

    Make It Readable

     Although a decorative font maybe attractive but it may also hard to read.

     The size of text depends on the application.

     Heading and subheadings are used to attract attention and provide the user with quick identification of the screen contents, while text blocks provide the substance.

    Working with Text

    Consider Type Styles and Colors

     Three common type styles are bold, italic, and

    underline.

     These styles are often used for emphasis in print

    materials.

     In multimedia applications, however, there are more

    often used to indicate hypertext, or hot words.
