suddenly bold shows as outline

I have a Nexus 5 on Lollipop
Suddenly instead of bold I get outline font
This is a lot less clear
How can I get bold back

re:

Found the setting. Go to Settings>Accessibility>High Contrast Text​, and uncheck it.

Any idea why this has happened? This just happened to me yesterday. It's hard on the eyes especially when it's on a black background.

I have this same problem on my LG V30+. My son has the same phone, and his fonts are normal. We've tried everything, including the suggestions as above, but no help. I even tried a factory reset. I've only had this phone a couple of months and it was like this from the start....it was annoying, but I just thought it was normal.
