Hello, I'm trying to find a way to check fonts for ADA compliance. Any suggestions? Specifically these fonts: Poppins, Americane, Mr. Eaves Modern and Quicksand.

Thank you! It appears that fonts are compliant based on HOW they are used per medium. Not the font itself.

It goes without saying that some fonts are much easier to read than others.  When choosing fonts for storefront signage, for example, the best fonts are usually clean, bold and uncomplicated by fleurishes or calligraphic reliefs.  And the best fonts for print may not be the right choice for viewing on a digital screen.  So it's 1 part art & science and 2 parts common sense.
