Publisher description for Speed Reader Plus

Speed Reader Plus program icon

Personal accelerated reading tool. Speed Reader Plus allows you to read ~1000 words per minute using RSVP and ColorBar technologies. 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 (RSVP)". 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. Xerox Research Findings: Xerox developed a reading machine designed like a racing car that uses RSVP and it confirmed the speed and comprehension advantages of this technology. Click here to see it.
