Abstract

When people study something, it is common to memorize textbooks, reference books, and notes that are handwritten or typed. Those memorization tasks are known to be effectively done with typefaces that are hard to read. Then, it is assumed that handwriting would help you memorize things better than typed letters as it is often difficult to read and the form of letters is not uniform. In this research, we conducted experiments on handwritten characters and typefaces that have different features from each other to verify whether they work differently for memorization. The result found that handwritten characters are more likely to be retained in memory than typefaces. Specifically, familiar handwritten characters are more likely to be retained in memory.
