English term or phrase: read with the naked eye
Estoy traduciendo unos estatutos sociales y aparece la expresión "read with the naked eye" en la siguiente oración: Where decisions of the directors are taken byelectronic means,such decisions shall be
recorded by the directors in permanent form, so that they may be read with the naked eye.
He encontrado algunos ejemplos en los que se traduce como "leer a simple vista", pero no estoy segura de si acaba de encajar con el contexto.

To be readable with eyes only not glasses, etc.


Explanation:
Important legal texts should be in a format that can be readable with only the eyes, and without the help of instruments like glasses, etc.
This affects for example the size of the fonts, color, font type, etc.

para que se pueda leer sin magnificación, o a simple vista


Explanation:
To be able to see something with the naked eye is a common expression. For example, certain planets or stars can be seen with the naked eye at certain times, places, and conditions. It means that you don´t need a telescope to see them.

In this context, it simply means that the text is legible without a magnifying glass or other aid (in case of incompatible colors between text and background, etc.). A person with normal eyesight (or corrected with lenses) can read it. Not such "fine print" that few people want to make the effort to read it.

"Leer a simple vista" would be a less complicated way of saying it.
