using fonts for captions or your instagram bio is really cute but very harmful for those who use screen readers. the screen readers translate it into things like “mathematical script small c, mathematical script small u..” those who are dyslexic, it makes things confusing and causes headaches in some cases. i’m not saying to not use fonts but when you do keep in mind of those that have difficulty reading fonts.
