Strip Words - Free Speed Reading Software

Read in thought groups! When we read, our eyes make small stops along the line of text. Poor readers make many more fixations (eye stops) than good readers. Not only does this slow you down, but it inhibits comprehension because meaning is easier to pull from groups of words rather than from individual words or even single letters. Try to read in phrases of three or four words, especially in complete clauses and prepositional phrases. Your mind may internalize them as if the whole phrase is like one big meaning-rich word.

Read in units or chunks of words

When we see sentences written on paper, we see words that are separated by spaces. What we hear when we speak, though, are not words but sounds. Words are separated by spaces on paper for convenience. Reading is similar to speaking because people who are proficient readers read sentences in units of words rather than one word at a time. This skill takes practice, but if mastered is well worth the effort. Speed-reading involves training both the eye and the brain to process words on a page that are stored in a reader's subconscious.

Advice about particular reading skills

Below are the titles of other advice sheets about reading. Just look at the one's that interest you. All the advice sheets suggest useful materials and tips for learning.

Keep it steady

It is also important for new speed-readers to practice smooth eye movement. One eye will always mirror the other's movements, so it is important to move them quickly and evenly when speed-reading. The jerkiness that accompanies each eye movement also slows the reader down.

Scan the text

Scan how the page is laid out, and use bold headers and captions to get an overview of the ideas and themes. Use peripheral vision; don't focus only on the logical flow of the text. Observe what you're reading with a wide-angle scope, as if you were looking at an image rather than a block of text. Use the same wide-eye span as you do when driving, looking at all that surrounds you and heading your way.

Using the wide-span approach, there are several methods in which you can "read" a page. Read paragraphs diagonally, and place emphasis on the key words. Read the page in a "Z" mode. Read in a "U" mode, moving down the page, and back up. Skim the text by reading the first sentence of each paragraph.

Try to speed up your eye movements to take in more per reading, rather than stay fixated and focused on a word. Use the help of your index finger, by moving it at a slightly faster pace than your reading speed. When reading on the Internet, scroll down quicker than you actually read.

Stay away from the following things; it should only take 3 seconds to read.

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.
