I’ve gotten some constructive, highly appreciated a11y feedback from my blog readers about using vw for font sizes. Basically, don’t.

All comments mentioned how it prevented them from resizing the font size & thus made it less accessible. I'm changing it as we speak.

out of interest what are you changing the measurement unit to instead?

Interesting. Is there any kind of fallback for accessibility readers? There are many advantages, too:

can you sneak an em unit into it with calc?

Readable is very relative. My reader said they found the font size too big :/

That's why we early learned that If we want to use vw units we should combine them with calc and em units.
