The best way to format online text?
A small Minnesota startup, Walker Reading Technologies, has come up with what their neuroscience-based research says is the best way to format text online. They’re packaging the results as a product called Live Ink.
Their findings show that when reading block copy the brain struggles to focus on a particular line, picking up confusing cues from the lines above and below.
So Live Ink automatically breaks the text up into chunks that are easier to read, and arranges them to avoid the cues that confuse our poor struggling-to-concentrate brains.
Plus you can use it as a nice automatic haiku converter.
