Eye Movement and the Legibility of Arabic Typefaces

When Thu 10 Oct 1340
Where Krasnapolsky A
What Science/Assessment
Who Nadine Chahine

This presentation takes a look at the mechanics of eye movement in reading, the different factors that can affect reading, and tackles the question of eye movement control, which is in essence the question of where and when to move the eyes. It also investigates the effects of the visual characteristics of text on reading, and offers a new definition of legibility that is rooted in the research of eye movement in reading. This talk will also present the first legibility study for Arabic typefaces that tests the effect of the complexity of typographic styles and vocalization on reading measures.
