Title
Effects of a graphical browser on readers' efficiency in reading hypertext
Source
Technical communication. 41(1994) no.2, S.224-233
Year
1994
Abstract
Graphical browsers in hypertext may be useful for alleviating many of the cognitive demands supposedly associated with using hypertext. However, much of the published literature on this issue is speculative. In fact, the few experimental investigations that exist have shown little or no effect for browsers and have limited themselves to describing outcomes on only a small set of measures. The present study emxamined the effect of a graphical browser on comprehension and retention of hypertext. The results indicate that the browser had no effect on recall, comprehension, or recall of text structure. However, the browser did increase the amount of text read by users and reduced the number of nodes repeated during reading
