Hi. I'm totally blind. While the tools I use will allow me to discover whether text is bold or italic, it requires special attention. So, while I read a lot, I don't pay attention to font styles that are used.
I'm at a point in my writing where I need to come up with my style rules for bold and italics. I am not talking about uses in headings, titles, or even things like telepathy in a science fiction story. The first two are covered adequately by style guides, and I think I have a handle on those sorts of special uses.
Instead, I'd appreciate input on how you use bold, all-caps, and italic for emphasis in running text. How often do you use them and which do you use for what?
If you're talking both about your own writing and Please make it clear whether you answer applies to your own writing or things you've read.
I really appreciate any help people offer.
