Abstract

The size and shape of the effective visual field in Chinese reading was investigated by systematically manipulating the availability of meaningful information on both sides of a fixated character. A self-paced, moving-window technique (Chen 1992) was adopted to measure the viewing time of individual characters as an on-line indicator of reading effectiveness under various display conditions. The results showed that the effective visual field in reading Chinese was asymmetric and skewed in the direction of scanning with a highly limited size, composing of the fixated character and two characters to its right.
