Television and Vision: Reading Captions when Vision Is Blurred.
Thorn, Sondra; Thorn, Frank
American Annals of the Deaf, v134 n1 p35-38 Mar 1989
Six hearing-impaired and 14 hearing adults, all with normal vision, viewed segments of captioned movies on television under 5 conditions of blur. The study found that, if a person has even a slight visual problem, the caption letters under normal television viewing conditions are too small for maximum reading performance. (Author/JDD)
