Webfonts remove the barriers between your text and your readers. Unlike type in an image, type in a webfont is real text: it’s searchable and selectable by readers, it magnifies crisply to any size, it works with in-browser translation services, it’s clear at any resolution, and it can be used in dynamic page elements such as searchbars and forms. Machines can read webfonts, too, and the more of your site a search engine can see, the better. Webfonts make it possible to use real text for every part of your site, from text to logos. And search robots aren’t the only technologies that can read webfonts: users with disabilities can finally use assistive devices to read all of your site’s content.

Selecting the right typeface is a mixture of firm rules and loose intuition, and takes years of experience to develop a feeling for.
