# [Tex/LaTex] Was the Knuth-Plass line breaking output ever subjected to a blind experiment

Have any blind trials been organized to test to which extent "the average reader" prefers paragraphs typeset by the Knuth-Plass algorithm (or more advanced variants) over those typeset using the simple greedy algorithm? See the Wikipedia article on word wrap for more information.

I'm mainly interested in trials that test longer texts as opposed to (contrived) single-paragraph samples. In addition to the preference (binary) of the reader, it would be very interesting to compare the read speeds for the differently typeset texts.
