Dynamic graphs presenting huge amount of time-series data have become more and more commonly used these days. Although previous research revealed that blinking component can attract human attention, hence facilitates visual, the effect of blink have not been clearly evident in a dynamic graph reading context. This study examines the effects of blink on the user’s affective experience and usability of using a blinking line graph. Additionally, this study describes an empirical experiment setup for investigating the characteristics of task types as a moderator to the relationship between blink and the user’s experience. This research aims to theoretically contribute graph comprehension domain by investigating the effects of blink on the graph comprehension process by providing a literature review about the influence of blink and task types on graph reading effectiveness and propose a quantitative experiment and to propose possible hypotheses.
