Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


Readability assessment for Arabic is still largely underserved in both research and software development. We believe that improved usability of the few tools currently released will motivate a greater user-base, and in doing so garner more interest in this topic from the research community. With that in mind, we examine recently developed readability tools with a graphical component, formulate recommendations, and propose visual enhancements to the way readability scores are reported to improve usability and informativeness.
