How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.
D= I’ve always wanted to speed read
Its brutal. Its great for getting through books fast but if someone asks you to read out loud you are royally fucked.
Im pretty sure they thought I could not read as a child simply because my oral reading skills are “no” because my eyes and mind are about a sentence away from where my mouth is.
I have always had the exact same problem.
I think this is why we read so many books as kids.
MY OWN MOTHER DID NOT BELIEVE I WAS ACTUALLY READING BOOKS BECAUSE SHE WOULD ASK ME TO READ THEM OUT LOUD AND I WOULD STRUGGLE SO HARD BUT IF SHE LEFT ME ALONE WITH IT FOR 30 MINUTES I COULD GIVE A WHOLE FUCKING SYNOPSIS BUT SINCE SHE DIDN’T READ THEM SHE THOUGHT I WAS BULLSHITTING FROM WHAT I READ ON THE COVER OH MY GOD IT WAS A NIGHTMARE.
