New program called Spritz.  Streams one word at a time, increasing reading speed from the average of 220 words per minute to upwards of 500 words per minute.  The example bellow is 500.  I was surprised that it's actually not that difficult to read, though I question whether it actually increases reading comprehension, despite their claims that it does.


Yup, though I could read it, I had near-0 comprehension ('course I'm really mentally tired, which doesn't help - gave me a headache, too... not sure if 'flashing visual' seizure-based or just mentally exhausted in general).

You are right:  for most people's brains, with new information it takes making connections between the new things and what they already know and understand for anything to 'stick'.

I can't imagine trying to read poetry like that.

Now that you say that, when reading a novel I don't read at the same speed all the time, it depends on what is going on and if I want to rip through some less interesting part or slow down and absorb a really good part, that app running at constant speed would probably take the fun out of reading a good story.

Yeah.  Good for reading an email or a text message.  Bad for reading something thought provoking, or instructions on how to do something complex.

What I say to people that think the sandy hook elementary school shooting, was nothing but a hoax or a conspiracy.
