Abstract:

Factors affecting legibility of numerals composed of a 5 x 7 matrix of squares were investigated. This experiment was conducted to 1 determine legibility as a function of the brightness of the numerals and the size of individual elements comprising the numerals, and 2 to generate a confusion matrix for the numerals used, as an initial step toward designing a legible set of numerals. A suggested set of numeral designs which was not evaluated experimentally was devised. Author
