The present study clarified the visual recognition performance of elderly people in reading Chinese characters. Chinese characters were randomly displayed in two-character compounds on a personal computer screen. The number of Chinese characters was changed in three steps, and the relation between the reading time and the number of characters was investigated. One hundred thirty subjects participated in this study (age 20s to 80s). The results showed that reading time tended to increase with age. A new formula to estimate the time required for each age group to read displayed information was also developed.
