Intuitively, it seems plausible that in real-world scenes, attention is disproportionately attracted by texts. The present study tested this hypothesis and examined some of the underlying factors. Texts in real-world scenes were compared with paired control regions of similar size, eccentricity, and low-level visual saliency. The greater fixation probability and shorter minimum fixation distance of texts showed their higher attractiveness. These results might be caused by the prominentfatcat:lh2gvquicfeebcp6uiyejurfq4
