Abstract

We focused on Japanese font types to design better user manuals for elderly people. We used four different Japanese fonts provided by Morisawa consisting of three universal design fonts and a font designed based on "kawaii". We created three user manual design elements and performed an experiment to reduce the number of candidates of combinations between font types and design elements and refine experimental design.
