Methods and Set-up

Video Eye-tracking
A video eye-tracking systems allows the fast recording of reading eye-movement data.
Recorded Saccades
Recorded saccades during the reading speed test.

Only in the "minimum visual field of reading" the text is perceived clearly. To achieve a clear perception of the adjacent letters, saccadic movement has to be performed. Thus, reading is performed as a regular pattern of saccades and fixations along a text line and a return sweep to the beginning of the next line.
