Reading Performance of Chinese Text with Automatic Scrolling
Auto-scrolling is useful when the reader wishes to move the text continuously to where the reader’s eyes are fixated on the visual display without having to press the control button on the scrolling device all the time. In this paper, we conducted an experiment to study the effects of scroll speed in text error search tasks. The study considered three experimental factors, scroll speed, error type, and article length. Reading performance and fatigue were measured with the error search accuracy and subjective evaluation. The result indicates that scrolling at a high speed would cause a decrease in error identification, affecting the quality of reading.
