I am working on a self-paced reading experiment with comprehension questions after each sentence (which is starting to come together now), but there are two things that I can’t seem to work out.
First of all, I would like to have a fixation cross ‘+’ before each sentence, but I want this cross to last for 2 seconds and then automatically disappear. Now, it is needed to press the space bar in order to make the cross disappear. I tried to change the duration of the trial text into 2 seconds, and I also tried to make a separate fixation routine, but both without success.
The second problem is that I would like to add the text “press ‘j’ for yes, ‘f’ for now” below each comprehension question, but it doesn’t work to simply type the text into the question routine (called ‘qs’). I get the following error:
Python syntax error in field ‘text’
Does anybody have a solution for these problems?
Thanks in advance!
Here is my experiment:
