RocketReader Speed Training
Speed training accelerates your reading speed by presenting information
rapidly on the screen.
Speed training trains to you eliminate the bad habit of eye skipback by hiding
the text of prior sentences. Since you only see one chunk of text at a time, the
earlier displayed text is invisible. This means your eyes cannot perform those
eye skipbacks that slow down reading pace and flow.
Eliminating Eye Overuse
Speed training trains you to read in blocks of words rather than word by word. This trains you
to see and understand more information with every eye glance. You can increase the block size
yourself as you improve.
Using Speed Training
bar under "Ramp" displays you how far you have progressed with the text.
The "Ramp" option means that the words will be displayed faster
as you progress through the text. The 50 means that the display rate will increase
to a speed of 50% faster by the end of the text. Of course, you can change
this percentage to make the increase in speed more or less challenging.
