Onderzoeksoutput: Bijdrage aan tijdschriftTijdschriftartikelAcademicpeer review


Do elderly people really need larger letters in order to read? The experiments on this topic by Bouma and his associates showed that this was not the case and, more surprisingly, that large letters are counterproductive for everyone. This paper proposes a model for letter size and reading rate based on contrast-sensitivity data. It turns out that elderly readers may need larger letters, but they will read more slowly as a result.
