Excerpt from An Experimental Study of the Eye-Voice Span in Reading

Quantz computed the correlations between eye-voice span and rate of reading and between eye - voice span and the positions in the line. He found a high correlation between reading rate and the width of the eye-voice span. He also found that the span depended to a great extent upon the point in the line at which the view was cut off. He reports an average span of words at the beginning of a line, words in the middle, and words at the end of the line.
