Text spacing override in Agent Desktop

Workspace Agent Desktop supports WCAG 2.1 Success Criterion 1.4.12 for text spacing overrides. Overrides are commonly applied by a user style sheet, bookmarklet, browser extension, or application. Agent Desktop supports the following overrides without loss of legibility due to truncation or superimposition:

  • The line height is adjustable to 1.5 times the font size.
  • The space between two paragraphs is adjustable to 2 times the font size.
  • The letter spacing is adjustable to 0.12 times the font size.
  • The word spacing between words is adjustable to 0.16 times the font size.

If you choose to apply a style sheet to override the default text spacing, the following CSS provides the maximum values that can be applied to the text:

* {
      line-height: 1.5!important;
      letter-spacing:.12em!important;
      word-spacing: .16em !important;
  }
p {
      margin-bottom: 2em!important;
  }

You can apply the CSS by using a browser plugin/extension such as Stylish, Stylus, or Custom Style Script. You can also use a bookmarklet, such as the CodePen text spacing bookmarklet.

Important
If you apply the maximum spacing overrides, Genesys assumes that the browser zoom is set to 100% and that browser font scaling has not been increased.
