Text is usually read by executing a series of eye movements resulting in a sequence of visual inputs to the reader that contain useful information about the word or small group of words fixated. This process can be simulated by a computer program that samples and displays successive segments of text for brief time intervals to a single visual locus. In this case the text can be read without necessitating any eye movements on the part of the reader. The present studies test perceptibility and readability of letter strings, words, and running text presented as sequences of rapid serial visual presentations (RSVPs) via a computer display.
