My reading speed has slowed significantly in the past few years (ever since I
stopped reading paperback books for the most part). The sub vocalization
issue had never even occurred to me before.
I tried reading the article by just looking at the words, and realized I could
indeed go much faster without pronouncing them in my head. I guess that's how skimming
works, but the trick is to slow down just enough to actually understand each word
while taking the group of words together as one thought.
> By using Speed reading software, you can improve
facilities of speed reading. You needn't practice special exercises; it
is just enough to read and periodical practice. Look at
free online speed reading trainings. All text
contain 50% of garbage.
> Habitually returning to what is already read, that
usually decreases the speed of reading, no longer happens. Reading each word
individually becomes unnecessary because skillful fast readers do not
individualize the text when reading at high speeds.
> You become accustomed to grasping a whole word or a
group of words at one glance. In this way you activate your peripheral vision
facilities. You study how to read without haste, because the program responds to
the speed you have chosen and does not react to your haste. The "Magic Speed
Reading" inclues 15 different computerized trainings.
