什麽是不同的電子書閱讀系統上的serif和sans serif字體?



在epub和kindle css中,您可以通過指定指定後備字體

 p {font-family: "Georgia", serif}
 h1 {font-family: "Helvetica", sans-serif}

如果各種閱讀系統都有serif和sans-serif的默認值,你能告訴我它們是什麽嗎?

I.E. Kindle電子墨水,Kindle安卓應用程序,Google Play圖書,ibooks,Kobo,Adobe DE。

在一個相關的問題上,我可以假設所有標題都是默認的sans-serif字體嗎?當客戶覆蓋發布者默認值並選擇某種字體(如kindle上的Bookerly)時,是否會將標題字體保留為默認的sans-serif?

UPDATE: Someone on KDP forum has confirmed that user-selected fonts for kindle systems are the same for body fonts and heading font. Therefore, you would need to specify a heading font if you want it to be different.

UPDATE 2 I encourage people to post fonts existing on the mobile devices or reading systems that they have. Please indicate whether there is an option to specify Publisher Defaults on the reading system. Also, if you have any insight as to which font would be considered the default Serif or Sans Serif choice by the reading system, please mention it. Thanks!

UPDATE 3 (5/2017) A commenter has pointed out that some Amazon Kindle devices are using fonts for Indic languages written in Bengali/Devanagari/Gujarati/Kannada/Malayalam/Tamil/Telugu. On the device this font is referred to as "Noto Sans." Noto is a multilingual font developed and supported by Google, but Amazon has only used portions of this Noto font for Indian languages. I have seen no official announcement yet.

Kobo電子閱讀器設備

我的第一代Kobo Glo預裝了以下字體(我猜其他Kobo設備使用相同的設置;用戶可以使用添加更多,但我認為這超出了您的問題的範圍):

Serif: (1)

Sans Serif:

其他</強>

  • KBJ-TsukuMin Pr6N RB (Serif) (2)
  • KBJ-UDKakugo Pr6N M (Sans Serif) (2)
  • OpenDyslexic

當然,這些自定義是可選的,並且可以默認電子書中定義的字體。

關於標題,如果在電子書樣式表中沒有特定的設置,它們就像其他文本一樣對待:除了具有更大的尺寸,如果沒有明確設置為其他文本,則會使用默認格魯吉亞。

適用於Android的Kobo應用程序

與電子閱讀器相比,該應用程序在自定義選項中更受限制:


1。包括slab serif
2.我不太確定,但我認為這些用於中文/日文的兼容性。

這裏 - 盡我所知 - 是選定的Android閱讀系統的系統字體:

Kindle for Android:

Note: Kindle/Android does NOT have an option for the user to select Publisher Defaults.

Google Play Books:

Note: GPB does NOT have an option for the user to select Publisher Defaults (unless it is "Original")

適用於Android的Adobe DE

  • 沒有可供選擇的字體

Overdrive for Android 3.6.2 (Overdrive is a library reading app which uses a branded version of Adobe DE reader and its DRM). No information is given about which fonts are the reading system's default for the general terms ("Serif, "Sans-Serif", etc).

  • 預設書本

  • Sans Serif

  • 襯線

  • 等寬

  • 無襯線粗體

  • 粗體字

  • 等寬字體

  • OpenDyslexic

  • OpenDyslexic Bold

Important Note: Kindle devices (and possibly apps on ios/android/windows) targeted for non-English speaking countries might have a different set of default fonts. I've seen reports starting in 2016 (here and here) that (unspecified) versions of Kindles devices for India include Noto Sans (the portion which support the Indian languages). According to reader reports, this started happening with reading devices which were able to receive the 5.8.7 firmware (or higher). That meant Kindle Paperwhites (generation 6 and later). If you know of other non-European fonts which are included by default on your device or app, feel free to mention in the comments)

(此信息來自一篇很棒的Roger Packer文章,如何為電子書選擇排版)。 PS,很高興知道這些將是serif和sans的系統默認值。

(It is unclear to me whether these fonts are installed on all these reading systems or whether they are installed only AFTER the Kindle owner loads an ebook in one of these languages).

Related: here's a deep dive into the system iBooks fonts (written in 2011, but still relevant). Here's another "review" of iBooks fonts (also from 2011).

請註意,截至6月1日,除非 publisher對package.opf文件進行了少量修改。如果這樣做,嵌入字體在字體設置上顯示為“原始”。
