The problem of sustainable and effective perception of large amounts of text information is relevant for decades. A continuous improvement of characteristics VideoTerminal devices, in particular, high-resolution display and, accordingly, the increased density of dots per inch, makes this question to come back again and again.
The article is devoted to the issues of increasing reading performance based on the evaluation and selection of the optimal font, using the optimality index as a criterion. The issue of improving the quality of perception of text information depending on the technical parameters of the matrix of the display means when using rendering engines is also touched upon.
