Effect of magnification and field of view size on reading speed using a CCTV
Lovie-Kitchin, Jan E. & Woo, George C. (1987) Effect of magnification and field of view size on reading speed using a CCTV. In Woo, George C. (Ed.) Low Vision: Principles and Applications. Springer-Verlag, New York, pp. 308-322.
Reading speeds were measured in 18 subjects with normal vision and 10 with low vision for each of 20 experimental conditions with different magnifications and field sizes on the Closed Circuit Television System (CCTV). There was a significant difference between the results for the two groups of subjects. These results suggested that in low-vision patients with faster reading speeds, minimum magnification for maximum field size on the CCTV would be valid advice. For low-vision patients who read more slowly, reading speed may improve at higher magnifications despite reduced field size.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
