Readability on the web is much more than language. Damien Senger takes us on a journey through the many facets that make a text easy to read on the web.

Damien’s presentation is about how people really read online. Reading happens in saccades and fixations. We often do not read word for word, but often in ‘forms’. And so lowercase letters turn out to be more readable than highercase letters.
Put most important at the top, work with headlines, ensuring a good layout, think of white space: all subjects that Damien not only discusses, but also knows how to substantiate with scientific research.
