L’hypertexte : approches expérimentale et herméneutique

Abstract : This article discusses the reading of hypertext and what characterizes it in his report to the screen. Because reading a hypertext grasp an object means textual, visual and interactive very complex, we decided to study this non-linear reading, under both approaches, experimental and hermeneutics. This is the search for traces of the process of meaning to the reader through quantitative data from its eye movements. This experiment using eye-tracking device (Eye-Tracking) provides elements that will help us to reconstruct and understand the pattern of hypertextual reading. It also allows us to indicate where the attention of a reader arises. Will it, however, tracking compliance, or the type of our reactions and interactions on screen? We emphasize then, unlike researchers in ergonomics of the Web, that the path of the eye on the screen can not match the interpretive path. What are the limitations of such a device when it is confronted with the question the construction of meaning? Hypertext the prism of objectification takes the figure of the labyrinth, the opening can be given by a hermeneutic approach, interpretative.
