Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


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.
