Although there is a large body of literature on research into colour in human-computer
interaction, the overwhelming majority of the literature emphasises the cognition by computer
users. However, colour is also important in this interaction when users manually type data into
a computer. This paper investigates the effect of colour combinations on manual data typing. To
this end, three experiments were conducted where the subjects were requested to read several
texts with different colour combinations and re-type them in the same screen. Typing accuracy
and speed is measured as the dependent variable across different colour combinations. Three
experiments were conducted as such. In the first experiment, display and input windows were
close to each other and in the second one they were located in the opposite ends of the screen.
The third experiment was a subset of the first one with reversed foreground and background
colours. It was found that different colour combinations had varying effects on data typing
performance and proximity of the display and input windows was not a significant factor for
typing accuracy in a 17-inch screen. The effect of reversing the foreground and background
colours was inconclusive with the colour combinations used.
