How readable are the websites?

#ReadabilityList ranks public and private websites according to readability. A high number of them have text that can be difficult to read - and this is indicated with a red color. It the text is yellow, it should be edited and improved. Websites that have been given a green color are few, but good exceptions. 

The analysis was performed using a special version of an application called Greentext - www.green-text.com. This tool functions as an objective correction of subjective guesswork about text readability. Algorithms are based on research and universal design.
