I am not sure what you mean by that. Can you please explain, or provide the context where you've encountered this term?

Usually this is only applied in professional advertising and marketing-communication. You might be able to gather a lot of input about this topic from sophisticated market research companies. The ones that test new ad campaigns before they reach the market by means of cameras that follow the eye-movement, for example. For example, when writing direct marketing pieces, I don't simply "translate" a letter or any other text, I will write it in a way that will accommodate the human reading habits and will create a typographical layout that will ensure the significant words to show up at the right places for the speed readers.
