Abstrakt

On the basis of the motivation to increase daily reading volumes, this paper introduces an implementation of "Wordometer 2.0," which counts the number of read words in a day. While word count estimation using eye tracking glasses or medical EOG (Electrooculography) sensors has been already proposed, our aim is to implement the idea on an affordable device to quantify readings in the whole day. We utilize commercial EOG glasses designed for everyday use. Our method was evaluated with a dataset involving five readers with 11% error rate with user-independent training.
