When watching television, do you like the news ticker that scrolls across the bottom of the screen?
Personally, I find the scrolling ticker so annoying that I put painter's tape across it to hide it. I find it distracting. I'm wondering if I'm in the minority or if others feel the same.
I get distracted by the ticker as well. I keep finding myself reading it and then missing what the reporter has just said about the story I'm trying to follow.
I find it annoying also, losing what the reporter is saying. I also look for spelling mistakes which makes it worse for me. I think they should only do that when there is breaking news, or developments in a new story.
I find that I can not focus on both the news ticker and the focal point on the screen. Distraction indeed!
