Information Transfer Problems of the Partially Sighted: Recent Results and Project Summary.
Genensky, S. M.; And Others
The fourth in a series of Rand reports on information transfer problems of the partially sighted reviews earlier reports and describes an experimental secretarial closed circuit TV (CCTV) system which enables the partially sighted to type from a printed or handwritten manuscript. Discussed are experiments using a pseudocolor system to determine the most suitable color of print and background for use with the CCTV. Reading rates for normally sighted people using the CCTV are the focus of additional research reported. A final section compares the results and administration data for four methods of detecting visual color deficiencies, including the modified Farnsworth Dichotomous test for Color Blindness. Appended is information on the chromaticity of the Conrac color TV monitor. (CL)
