An Investigation of the Relationships Between Reading Speed and Paper Hue Intensity, Age and Gender
Ekstrom, Ireta
Association for Educational Communications and Technology, Chicago, IL, October 19-23, 2004
Due in part to health care improvements and the post World War Two Baby Boom, (Siegel, 1972), the population of older adults is growing and will continue to grow. By 2030 approximately 20 percent of the U.S. population will be over age 65 (Verma, 1989). By attending to readability (the ease of reading a printed page) and legibility (the speed with each letter or word can be recognized), some age-related difficulties may be circumvented.
