Adults' Prior Exposure to Print as a Predictor of the Legibility of Text on Paper and Laptop Computer.
Stone, Deborah B.; Fisher, Sylvia K.; Eliot, John
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v11 n1 p1-28 Feb 1999
Investigates effects of variations in font, leading, and justification that account for differences in speed and accuracy between reading aloud from paper versus laptop computer. Finds that: (1) subjects' prior exposure to print significantly and positively related to predicting speed and miscue performance; (2) educational attainment significantly predicted miscue performance; and (3) age was not significantly related to performance.
