Kerning

kerning: [kur-ningnoun, Printing

1.  the setting of two letters closer together than is usual by removing space between them.

I would venture to say that if done right, most people wouldn’t have a clue that there is an adjustment in spacing between characters. People would only notice if done incorrectly. It’s basic Typography 101 for readability and legibility.
