Although there are many fonts to select from when creating a document, it is important to choose those that are recommended for both readability and availability across computer platforms. It is suggested that selecting one of the following sans serif font styles make documents accessible to the largest audience possible: Arial & Verdana (size 12 pt).

Sans serif fonts improve readability for individuals with low vision and/or other types of print disabilities (e.g., dyslexia).
