Various factors to measure readability have been used, such as "speed of perception," "perceptibility at a distance," "perceptibility in peripheral vision," "visibility," "the reflex blink technique," "rate of work", "eye movements," and "fatigue in reading." Readability is distinguished from legibility which is a measure of how easily individual letters or characters can be distinguished from each other.
