    Default Accessibility in Arabic content - Fonts

    I've found this useful link https://www.blm.gov/sites/blm.gov/fi...k_H-1297-1.pdf although dated 2015. We all know how fast-paced developments in accessibility are, but this is a practical guide to develop accessible content.

    I was actually seeking info on accessibility in Arabic and found these couple of good tips:
    1. As for any other language, KISS is the word! It translates in this tip: We suggest limiting your document to no more than two fonts.

    1. Fonts specifically recommended for Arabic, at least for MS Word content are: Arabic typesetting, Traditional Arabic and Simplified Arabic.

    1. A font known to have issues for Arabic, and therefore not recommended at all is the Adobe Arabic.

    Thanks, gentle!

    That handbook is really detailed!

    It's the first time I see the acronym KISS. Is it "keep it super simple"? or "keep it simple, s...!"? (‿)

    Whatever you like, solg! It is a flexible acronym, indeed!
    Perhaps you were too young in the '80s, but I liked the rhyming with "grease is the word!" from the song.
