There is a great application called “Spritz” that increases your reading speed exponentially.
I have always struggled to read anything quickly. I average about 10 pages per hour or 83 hours per minute. I find I have to say the word out loud in my head before I can process it.
Using the app I was able to read at 500 words per minute. Over 5 times increase in speed.
Often when I tired other speed reading techniques or programs, I don’t actually retain anything I have read. But with Spritz, I find I can actually recall the content.
You can try the app out on their website. I went to the science page and was able to read the entire thing in under a minute, and could spew the facts of the page to a co-worker.
Eventually they will have this app running on wrist watches, eye wear like google glass, or even rings like the smarty ring.
Though I question how comfortable it is to read text with only one eye.
