The development of electronic paper, which has the merits of both paper and electronic displays, is being eagerly pursued. This study aims to clarify the factors of readability which is naturally realized by paper; clarified factors will yield good guidelines for realizing readable electronic paper. Our expectation is that reading style is an important factor determining readability. We evaluate the reading performance of three medium handling styles (vertical, horizontal, hand-held) using current electronic books (LIBRIe, ΣBook) and paper documents. Test results show, for both types of electronic books, that the “hand-held” style is superior in terms of lower fatigue and better readability. It is suggested that the readability of electronic displays can be enhanced by making them compact and permitting the hand-held reading style.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
