  • How we read shown through eyetracking
  • How you read left aligned text…
  • How you read left aligned text…
  • Left aligned text lets you read fluently…
  • How you read centre aligned text…
  • You have to skip to different line starting positions – this makes it slower to read.
  • How you read right aligned text…
  • Again you have to skip to different line starting positions making it slower to read.
  • How you read justified text…
  • Justified text leads to uneven gaps between words which disrupts fluent reading
  • HOW YOU READ TEXT WRITTEN ONLY IN CAPITALS…
  • An all caps sentence destroys the word shape making word recognition slower and rereading a word more frequent
  • Use left aligned text for reading
