A friend just told me about RSVP FastReader, a utility that takes text and presents it word-after-word very quickly in one spot on your screen. It’s intended for devices with small displays.
I just downloaded and installed it and tried it out with the sample text. I had it cranked up to speed 6 and could understand the sentences coming in. However, unfamiliar terms such as names and new words went by too fast. They need to be presented more slowly. I think it works best when the words are familiar but the sentences aren’t.
I cranked it to 10. It was then like having a pressurised IV straight through my eye sockets into my brain.
Doesn’t seem to be good for reflection on the material though. Maybe it’s like TV in that respect?
Oh, and it goes past 11.
