Rapid Serial Visual Presentation on modern mobile telephones


This thesis is a comparative study of Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (RSVP) which is a dynamic method of presenting text.

The aim of the study was to investigate how to improve the user friendlyness of RSVP for today's mobile phones and technology. To fulfill the purpose, the aspects of the method which could be improved was investigated and then implemented in a prototype. The prototype was tested in an experimental study after which the result was analyzed and compared with previous studies of RSVP.

The new features that were implemented in this study showed no significant improvements in usability compared with previous studies, but proved to be more user-friendly in comparison with normal spatial reading.
