According to a paper from the University of Toronto (http://www.dgp.toronto.edu/~ravin/papers/ecscw2005_textorientation.pdf), the readability difference is slight, though shows a slight bias towards clockwise rotation.

Hi All,

I have an graphic, in English. Some of the text is rotated so that I
look to the left to read it, some is rotated so I look to the right to
read it.

Which way should rotated text face, in English in pictures? I can't
remember and I think Hebrew has infected my brain...

Thanks!

Deborah
