We would like to introduce our project titled “Assisted Reading”; The aim of this project is to make the online reading or E-book experience more convenient and enjoyable to the user. We present gaze-assisted reading techniques which use the traditional linear reading style. This approach enables continuous gaze-assisted reading without requiring manual input to scroll, along with text highlighting for increased reading clarity: We implemented two different page scrolling techniques in order to try and get an impression for which technique is most optimal. We also applied a text highlighting feature in order to test if it makes reading the text more clearer, and improves the overall reading experience. Testing our project with users and gathering their general opinion gave us an insight into which features were preferred and most effective.
