  • Can you check how the title Task category looks like. It seems like letters in task are to close – Ivana Banfić Mar 1 '17 at 10:06

    Do you have a live example? What version of the font and how are you using it (e.g. Google fonts, your own generated web-font etc.)? – Cai Mar 1 '17 at 10:22
  • Please circle or enlarge that part of your image. Even with your comment, it took me a couple seconds to find the word you were pointing out. – Vincent Mar 1 '17 at 11:10
  • Simply put: Web browsers render things, including letters and letter spacing, differently than operating systems. They're less exact – Zach Saucier Mar 1 '17 at 18:46

If this is web related you can use the css property: letter-spacing and set both positive and negative values.

There is also font-kerning but only has three values.
