Are there any recent studies that have tried to objectively compare the legibility of typefaces on screen using modern screens (including hi-dpi screens)?

Note: I'm not interested in opinion on what constitutes a legible or readable font, only in data.

  • I think there might be something about Noto Sans by Google or Plex by IBM that talks about their design of fonts that are intended for globalization and localization. Hopefully someone digs up the links :) Keep in mind also that legibility is also in a given context, because some fonts are specifically designed to be machine readable or for dyslexic people. – Michael Lai Aug 11 '18 at 8:51
  • (1) Is there any reason to believe that the old studies aren't applicable anymore? (2) Are the results at Google Scholar not what you're looking for? – Ken Mohnkern May 23 '19 at 20:22
