Abstract

Reading is a ubiquitous activity that many people even perform in transit, such as while on the bus or while walking. Tracking reading enables us to gain more insights about expertise level and potential knowledge of users - towards a reading log tracking and improve knowledge acquisition. As a first step towards this vision, in this work we investigate whether different document types can be automatically detected from visual behaviour recorded using a mobile eye tracker. We present an initial recognition approach that combines special purpose eye movement features as well as machine learning for document type detection. We evaluate our approach in a user study with eight participants and five Japanese document types and achieve a recognition performance of 74% using user-independent training.
