Étude de la lisibilité des documents de santé avec des méthodes d'oculométrie

Abstract : Study of readability of health documents with eye-tracking methods. Medical area is integral part of our lives due to health concerns, but the availability of medical information does not guarantee its correct understanding by patients. Several studies addressed this issue and pointed out real difficulty in understanding of health contents by patients. We propose to use eye-tracking methods for studying further the issue and for detecting which linguistic units in health documents are problematic. For this, original and simplified versions of medical documents are exploited. Eye-tracking permits to follow the gaze of participants and to reveal reading indicators such as duration of fixations, regressions and saccades. The results indicate that there is statistically significant difference in reading of original and simplified versions of the health documents tested
