Scientists: spaces help to read faster
Did you know that the increased spacing between letters makes reading easier?
Academics watched the children read and found out that the reader perceives the text with a large interval between characters easier and faster.
This discovery inspired experts to conduct an experiment – they set a goal for themselves to find out what kind of influence exerts between letters on reading and what it is connected with.
The study showed that a large distance between letters helps precisely the process of reading, and not just the visual perception of a certain sequence of characters.
Now academics are thinking of examining all aspects of the reading process in order to understand at what stage the inter-letter interval has an impact.
