Readability...Lesbarkeit. Making the Numbers Work

A session at tcworld conference 2016

Thursday 10th November, 2016

8:45am to 10:30am (CET)

Readability? Lesbarkeit? Most technical writers have a good eye for quality in the text they write. But is the text “readable” at a level that matches the audience and topic? Most word processing software includes at least one readability evaluation tool and many online sites that can evaluate the readability of a block of text and return a numeric readability value. In this presentation, we will look at the science of readability and work through examples in both German and English to show experienced and beginning technical writers how to optimize text readability for their audience.
