I’ve heard that Helvetica Neue has a version specifically for web use that resolves the issue of the capital I and lowercase L looking the same. I am trying to find this version to be ADA compliant and have had no luck so far. Can you help?

  • Interesting, I've not heard of this version of the font, where did you hear that there was such a version? (P.s. guys why are there two downvotes and two close votes with no comments? It's a good question; if you think it can be improved, say how) – user56reinstatemonica8 Aug 16 '15 at 20:44

    @user568458 Its ok if its true. However, since false statements are in general hard (if not impossible) to prove wrong. This only causes the rumor mill to ramp up. Better ask: Is there a version of Helvetica Neue that distinguishes l and I. Leave the speculative part out. Didn't down vote though. – joojaa Aug 16 '15 at 20:51
  • There is a monospaced version of helvetica, that lets you distinguish land I easier: myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/helvetica-monospaced – mnxd Aug 16 '15 at 21:03
  • I've never heard of an ADA requirement that the lowercase l and upper case I have to look different. – DA01 Aug 16 '15 at 22:00
