Readability is a measure of how easy a piece of text is to read. It can include elements of complexity, familiarity, legibility and typography. Readability formulas usually look at factors like sentence length, syllable density and word familiarity as part of their calculations.
[1] Data in a data format that can be automatically read and processed by a computer, such as CSV, JSON, XML, etc. Machine-readable data must be structured data. Compare human-readable. Non-digital material (for example printed or hand-written documents) is by its non-digital nature not machine-readable.
Related Definitions Machine readable copy means a format that can be used and understood by a computer; copies must be stored using text file formats that are either standardized or otherwise publicly known, so that anyone can develop new tools for working with them.
Like the language within a readable document, its about keeping it simple. Shorten sentences. Cut your sentences down. Use shorter, less complex words. Look at your words that are more than two syllables long. Use active voice. Remove unnecessary words. Use a readability tool.

An example of a human-readable format is a PDF document. Although PDF is a digital media, its data representation does not require any specialized equipment or computer to interpret. Moreover, the information contained in the PDF document is usually intended toward humans, not machines.
