    Abstract

    Knowledge of visual perception is needed to display text and graphics in an effective and efficient way. This paper therefore describes the visual processes involved in reading and the effects of typography. spatiallayout and text colours on legibility. Some information is given on graphics, as an alternative for text and as the main constituent of graphical user interfaces.
