# How to change the interword spacing?

I'm trying to enlarge the interword spacing, because with ITC Kabel's default spacing it's sometimes hard to decide where is the space between two words. I read the manual of the microtype package, and I did some trying, without success. For example this one:

\usepackage{microtype}
\SetTracking[ spacing = {1000*,1666, } ]{ encoding = T1, family = *, shape=*,series=*}{ 25 }


Maybe there is an easy solution that doesn't involve microtype?.

You can change the \fontdimen parameters controlling the interword spacing: \fontdimen2 (the normal interword space), \fontdimen3 (the amount of stretch of the interword space), and \fontdimen4 (the amount of shrink). A lttle example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}

\lipsum[1]

\spaceskip=1.5\fontdimen2\font plus 1.5\fontdimen3\font
minus 1.5\fontdimen4\font

\lipsum[1]

\end{document}
