Query: is it a good idea to use all caps in ADA-compliant printed material
It is not a good idea to use all caps in ADA-compliant printed material. Using all caps reduces readability because all words have a uniform rectangular shape, making it harder for readers to identify words by their shape. This can slow down all readers, especially those with certain types of visual and/or cognitive impairments.
To ensure accessibility and readability, it is better to avoid using all caps and instead use a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, following standard sentence case rules for formatting your text.
