    This article describes three experiments relating to the legibility of TV menus. Special emphasis is placed on the influence of a relatively new feature in TVs: the possibility to blend graphics and video. Three experiments are presented: one concentrating on the influences of blending level and video content; one concentrating on the influences of content and of colour combinations; and one concentrating on the influences of various font characteristics. The results are interpreted in terms of guidelines for blended TV menus.
