I can't provide you proof but I can speak from personal experience that thin line fonts are much harder for me to read.  Overly bold fonts are a problem as well because the shape of the letter then is harder to distinguish.

Hi

Does anyone have some research or evidence about the accessibility of different fonts? We have come across a very thin-lined font and we have been asked for proof that it is harder to read than normal font.

Thanks
Gian
