Abstract : Reading is an automated process. One of the remarkable human abilities is that we can read even partially erased or hidden words. We carried out a study on written word recognition in order to decipher how much information is required at least to identify a word. Experimental software was designed in C++ language to measure the amount of information in pixels and reaction time. The results showed we could identify words at a very low display rate and suggest that prior knowledge on the category of words play a mediating role in written word recognition.
