Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Att undersöka läshastigheten på datorskärm och om den kan förbättras med hjälp av färgade overlays, samt om det finns någon skillnad i läshastighet på utskrivet papper och datorskärm.

Metod: Deltagarna (n=30) fick läsa ett Wilkins rate of reading test översatt till svenska, där antalet ord som hann läsas upp högt under en minut jämfördes då de läste på papper utan overlay och på datorskärm med och utan overlay. Studien gjordes på studenter mellan 18-31 år.

Resultat: Den här studien visar att det inte finns någon signifikant skillnad i läshastighet mellan läsning på utskrivet papper och datorskärm (p=0,508). Deltagarna läste 1,6 ± 13,3 ord mer/min på datorskärm än på papper. En signifikant skillnad kan däremot ses mellan läsning på datorskärm med och utan färgat overlay (p=0,008). Läshastigheten ökade med 4,7 ± 9,1 ord/min med färgat overlay.

Slutsats: Läshastigheten på papper och datorskärm är ungefär densamma. Man kan öka läshastigheten på datorskärm genom att placera ett färgat overlay över texten.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: To investigate reading speed on a computer screen and if it can be improved by using coloured overlays, and also if there is any difference in reading speed on printed paper and computer screen.

Methods: The participants (n=30) read a Wilkins rate of reading test translated into Swedish, where the number of words read out loud in one minute was compared when reading on a paper without overlay and on a computer screen with and without an overlay. This study was performed on students aged 18-31 years.

Results: This study shows that there is no significant difference in reading speed between reading on a printed paper and on a computer screen (p=0.508). The participants read 1.6 ± 13.3 words/min more on the computer screen than on the paper. A significant difference however was found in reading on a computer screen with and without coloured overlay (p=0.008). The reading speed increased with 4.7 ± 9.1 words/min with a coloured overlay.

Conclusions: The reading speed on paper is similar to the reading speed on computer screen. The reading speed on the computer screen can be increased by placing a coloured overlay in front of the text.
