This article describes a method of improving the visual experience when reading text in an Augmented Reality (AR) environment. When the user focusses on a piece of text which could be text in the real world or augmented text, the area surrounding the text is visually enhanced in order to optimise the contrast levels. The user's current environment is taken into account when the AR device calculates the colour enhancement.
