Description

Purpose: To determine the difference, if any, in text legibility and the accommodative response between hard copy, LCD desktop, and handheld video displays, and how it affects users’ accommodative responses.

Introduction: Many users report greater comfort reading on a handheld device than on a desktop monitor. We postulated that this was because handheld resolution is often higher than desktop monitors, despite their smaller display size. Text legibility and accommodative responses were measured to test this hypothesis.
