Visual information on eye movements can be used to facilitate scrolling while one is reading on-screen text. We carried out an experiment to find preferred reading regions on the screen and implemented an automatic scrolling technique based on the preferred regions of each individual reader. We then examined whether manual and automatic scrolling have an effect on reading behaviour on the basis of eye movement metrics, such as fixation duration and fixation count. We also studied how different… Expand
Eye Movements in Reading of Dynamic On-screen Text in Various Presentation Formats and Contexts
TLDR
The dissertation indicates that eye movements are greatly influenced by the design of the text presentation format in various contexts, and confirms that people have preferred reading regions on the screen. Expand
Understanding gaze and scrolling strategies in text consumption tasks
TLDR
An 18 participant user study is conducted to understand how users' gaze position and scrolling strategies are coordinated, and concludes with a new gaze-enhanced scrolling technique aimed to support behaviors evident in manual scrolling. Expand
Gaze-contingent scrolling and reading patterns
TLDR
An automatic technique that scrolls the window content while the user is reading the text in the window has been implemented and is shown to result in smooth reading activity. Expand
TextPursuits: using text for pursuits-based interaction and calibration on public displays
TLDR
It is shown how reading text on large display can be used to enable gaze interaction in public space and the use of Pursuits with text (read-and-pursue), a technique that correlates users' eye movements with moving on-screen targets. Expand
Improving the performance of eye trackers with limited spatial accuracy and low sampling rates for reading analysis by heuristic fixation-to-word mapping
TLDR
This study shows very high success rates in automatically mapping fixations to the lines of text being read when the mapping is deferred, and provides a solid basis for developing systems for use in classrooms and other learning environments that can provide immediate automatic support with reading.

Effects of haptic feedback on gaze based auto scrolling
TLDR
Results show no statistical differences between conditions with or without haptic feedback on task time or gaze behavior, however, user experience varied a lot and some participants were not able to associate the haptics and the scrolling. Expand
Similarities and Differences Between Eye and Mouse Dynamics During Web Pages Exploration
TLDR
New analysis methods are proposed and a more advanced characterization of the link between the eye and the computer mouse is proposed, which suggests the existence of a task-independent relationship between eye, mouse, and scroll parameters, which are characterized by two distinct patterns. Expand
A Scrolling Approach for Gaze-Based Interaction
TLDR
This demo paper presents a gaze-based extension for the M²ice interaction concept that is realized by dividing the screen into distinct areas and combining scrolling areas with a reading area in the middle. Expand
Visualizing the Reading Activity of People Learning to Read
TLDR
The goal of the visualizations was to highlight the reading skills to a teacher with no background in the theory of eye movements or eye tracking technology. Expand
Modeling Sub-Document Attention Using Viewport Time
TLDR
This work examines and evaluates three increasingly sophisticated models of sub-document attention computed from viewport time, the time a page component is visible on the user display, and incorporates prior eye-tracking knowledge about onscreen reading, and validate it by showing how it aligns with known empirical measures.

Reading Performance of Chinese Text with Automatic Scrolling
TLDR
The result indicates that scrolling at a high speed would cause a decrease in error identification, affecting the quality of reading. Expand
Eye tracking analysis of preferred reading regions on the screen
TLDR
It is shown that users have individually preferred reading regions, varying in location on the screen and in size, and how scrolling interactions and mouse movements are correlated with position and size of the individually preferredReading regions is explored. Expand
Gaze-enhanced scrolling techniques
TLDR
This work presents several gaze-enhanced scrolling techniques for manual and automatic scrolling which use gaze information as a primary input or as an augmented input for document navigation and control. Expand

TLDR
The basic theme of the review is that eye movement data reflect moment-to-moment cognitive processes in the various tasks examined. Expand
Exploring Effects of Speed and Font Size with RSVP
TLDR
Results showed significantly higher reading comprehension for text presented at 250 wpm compared to 650 wpm and no effect of font size was found for reading comprehension, but participants preferred the 20-pointfont size compared to the 12-point font size. Expand

Reading patterns and usability in visualizations of electronic documents
TLDR
It is found that subjects using the overview+detail interface often explore the document further even when a satisfactory answer to the given question has already been read, suggesting that overviews may grab subjects' attention and possibly distract them. Expand
A heatmap-based visualization for navigation within large web pages
TLDR
This paper introduces a tool that increases users' awareness of the organization of long HTML pages and visualizes their own navigation movements within these pages and uses a simple user interface concept which concentrates on automatic collection of information. Expand
