This post is inspired by something I have just read that reminded me of the importance of function when it comes to web design. The RNIB article 'Now, it's more important than ever that everyone can read your information!' It caught my eye because it follows on from the RNIB* advising, strongly, that websites don't use justified text.
There are generally four alignment options for text Left, right, centred and justified. The problem is that justified text can create large spaces and patterning in text blocks that can make it harder to read the actual text.
We have always been mindful of creating justified text that looked natural on the page but this was more for the look of the page than any other consideration. However with the growing acceptance that accessibility is something everyone should be taking more seriously we now take the view that it's easier to avoid any issues by using standard text.
Because of this we now recommend not using justified text on all new websites and over time will be looking to reconfigure our existing sites.
