...ball games it is the bounce point. The spatial scale of the task determines the accuracy of these points is targeted by the gaze (Regan, 1992). Hence, in reading every fixation takes in about seven letter spaces (Johansson, 2001). This is the standard print at forty centimeter meaning that saccades are approximately1.331 long. Thus, from any one detected letter, the maximum angular distance of the fovea center is half of this which is 0.671. On the other extreme, the average size of ‘within object’ saccades in both sandwich and tea making was about 81, giving a maximum eccentricity target of 41 (Land M. T., 2001). This is six times greater than in reading....
