Abstract
The report discusses a number of significant problems associated with the development and application of conventional human engineering display specifications and presents a detailed specification for comparative and objective evaluation of video monitor legibility performance based upon legibility tests developed for the USAF. The specification consists of criteria for subject selection, visual environment design, display monitor setup, test material design and presentation, legibility task scores, and legibility test performance.
