U.S. Military Research Findings:
The average person reads 150 words per minute. In an effort to improve
reading speed for combat personnel, the U.S. military funded research to study
the biomechanics of reading. Their findings revealed that most of our time
reading is wasted as our eyes move from left to right, collecting each word. To
improve reading performance, the researchers developed a stationary reading
system that rapidly displayed words in a fixed location. They found this new
reading method significantly increased reading speed and reading comprehension.
Reading speeds of over 1000 words per minute were achieved. The inventors received a U.S.
Patent for this technology they call "Rapid Serial Visualization Presentation
ColorBar Technology (patent pending):
This software uses RSVP technology allowing you to read faster from your PocketPC. To enhance your reading experience, Speed Reader Plus also uses its
own ColorBar technology. The ColorBar will
gradually change color as each word in the sentence is displayed,
giving you a sense of the word's location in the
sentence. At high reading speeds, the ColorBar will appear
to pulse as you acquire the thought of each sentence. Using the ColorBar
will make your reading experience more
fluid and comfortable.
