Some Effects of Television Screen Size and Viewer Distance on Recognition of Short Sentences.
Lewin, Earl P.
A study investigated changes in recognition time for short sentences presented on television screens of varying sizes with viewers at varying distances. In a posttest only control group design, subjects in several different groups viewed a series of similar sentences under conditions where screen size and distance from the screen were varied. The subjects' scores were subjected to a one-way analysis of variance, thd results showed that recognition time decreased as the subject was moved closer to the television screen and as the screen size was increased. The study suggests, then, that variables such as set size and viewer distance should be considered by graphics designers for both commercial and educational purposes. (SH)
