The Effects of Line Length and Method of Movement on Patterns of Reading from Screen.
Dyson, Mary C.; Kipping, Gary J.
Visible Language, v32 n2 p150-81 1998
Describes two experiments that explore the effect of line length and paging versus scrolling on reading from screen. Finds that long lines were read faster than short lines with no change in comprehension and that subject's judgment of reading ease did not correlate with performance. Concludes that further study is needed. (PA)
