Has anyone mentioned Tiresias yet?
Tiresias is a range of typefaces designed to maximise legibility on screens,
labelling and signage. It was originally designed for television subtitles.
Tiresias Screenfont has been adopted by the UK Digital Television Group as
the resident font for digital terrestrial television. It is heavily endorsed
by the Royal National Institute for the Blind in the UK. For more
information, go to http://www.tiresias.org/fonts/home.htm
