Speed reading made easy, train yourself to read 1800+ words per minute. Rapid serial visual presentation (RSVP) at its best!
Sprint Reader is an easy to use speed reading extension.
Simply select text on a webpage, right-click and select 'Sprint read selected text' from the menu. This will launch the reader window, the selected text is displayed word-by-word in a fixed focal position. The duration of each slide is calculated based upon a word-per-minute (WPM) setting.
This method of reading is known as “Rapid Serial Visual Presentation” or RSVP for short. Studies have shown the habit of internally “sounding out” (sub-vocalising) words is a limiting factor which prevents faster reading speeds from being obtained. RSVP eliminates the “sounding out” of words as individual words are not displayed long enough for sub-vocalisation to occur.
RSVP proves that humans are capable of absorbing information at speeds much faster than standard reading rates with the same level of comprehension.
