text reduction technique used in our prototype. This technique
automatically shortens text and reduces font size in order to meet the
userís space reduction request.
Automatic Text Reduction is a
technique for viewing text objects under changing size constraints in 2D
environments. Our approach automatically combines font size reduction and
content reduction (summarization) to preserve legibility of keywords.
Unlike traditional semantic zooming, our approach creates intermediate
representations and transitions automatically. The main benefit is that it provides more meaningful views for
different object sizes without additional authoring effort.
