Abstract:

The literature on the legibility of numerals, capital letters, and words on television displays, dating from the late 1940s to the present, is evaluated. Selected studies of such factors as vertical resolution, video bandwidth, and direction of scanning are reviewed in detail. Conclusions are drawn, and recommendations are made for display design and applications.
