Comparison of Age Groups on the Readability of an E-Reader with a Built-in Light
We carried out experiments to evaluate the readability of e-paper devices using different systems. In the experiments, we conducted subjective evaluations under staged illuminance conditions. This study found that different age groups showed differences in reading e-paper devices with a built-in light under different conditions of illuminance.
