- A new method for reading dynamic texts using finger movements -
We propose a novel method for reading digital texts called “Yu bi Yomu.” With this method, the contrast of the displayed texts is changed dynamically in response to the reader’s finger. The text on the computer monitor is barely visible in the initial display but when the reader traces a finger across the monitor, the characters at the location of the finger appear and disappear gradually. This dynamic text presentation based on finger movement can provide a richer impression while reading. In addition, using this method, we can easily make a dynamic text movie and send it to others. This method enables us to express effectively subtle nuances in communication using text. This method provides a new perspective for text communication, and may be applicable to the education of young people.
