Size of accents in DL fonts
I'd like to raise an issue regarding the fonts used in DL.
It seems to me that the size of accents is too small. In particular, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish "i" from "í", which makes learning more tiring. Also, accented capital letters have tiny, difficult to spot accents in small print. For example: "Ó" vs "O".
Whereas the standard sans font in DL is generally beautiful and very readable, this accent issue is really bothering me.
And by the way, no, I don't suffer from any special eyesight issues! :)
Thank you everyone for this great resource!
Thank you for this scilling. However I have tried it and my "fadas" are still pea-sized. On the other hand it'd be better for everyone if DL would just cop on, instead of having to mess with our browsers.
Is Museo Sans Rounded still being displayed in your browser? Did you try restarting your browser after installing either Stylus, Stylish, or Tampermonkey? Did you use the default typeface choice of Verdana in the user style/userscript? (Verdana’s síntí fada are not pea-sized.)
Duolingo is not concerned with how legible the diacritics of Museo Sans Rounded are, so any typeface changes will need to be done on a per-browser basis.
Yes, I did restart after installation. But no luck, still stuck with Museo Sans Rounded. I am running Firefox ESR 52.9 in Linux.
Did you use the default typeface choice of Verdana when you’d installed the user style? If you did, are the Verdana font files installed on your Linux system? (They’re often found in a package named “ttf-ms-fonts”.)
I’m running an older version of ESR Firefox, but the
window.duo.stylesheets there? If there is, what strings are assigned to it?
Thanks for your help, but I'm still bumping my head over this with Firefox. I've tried all combinations and permutations but nothing happens. Maybe some other extension is messing up my settings, I'll have to do a clean start...
Verdana is definitely installed, and I'm leaving all defaults. I'm doing a browser restart after every installation/uninstallation. When I check the source (CTRL-U) I can see window.duo.stylesheets with value ["/css/ltr-00926682.css","/css/rtl-1e12e7994d.css"].
Don't waste your time any longer, it has to be some issue on my side. I'll try other browsers.
yeah it sucks
I use a font changer and it worked great until the recent site update when it started forcing their font every time the page was reloaded (so to get my font I had to click on the font changer icon every time and only then it changed)
a couple of days ago I got fed up with that and installed another font changer and this one is "stronger" so it doesn't let the page to force their font
(but there is a downside to the new font changer that it changes the font on every page you visit (on the previous one you could set it not to change))
Thanks, can you please give more details? I've tried scilling's tweak above but somehow it does not work for me.
the font changer I used first https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/font-changer-with-google/jgjhhoglgjdklldfgoffdiaceffijeke
(this works only in google chrome, so if you use another browser try googling font changer for that browser)
