Spritz - read MUCH faster

Got on a new app which allows to read any longer text much faster without to learn any new technique.
The text is displayed as separated word after word in a very small screen. The eye does not need to
follow the block of words as they appear all at the same small space.
Choose from 200 words per minute up to 1000...
and "Spritz"
you got it!

No need to train - the brain adapts very quickly to the presentation and the reading process is not tiring.
A good reader with max speed (1000 words/min.) could read so a Harry Potter band in less than 2 hours.

Other than in the lumosity thread (by @Gary) to train the brain - this nifty application
window for text is cool to read every article on a website fast, read eBooks faster or read from a smartphone
or new smart wrist watch texts in a blaze.

Try it here: Spritz
Can be downloaded to your browser (for free) to speed up your internet reading immediately!

Personal tests

Getting first a unknown text (article) to read. Adjusting the wanted read spead by choosing
words per minute shown and start Spritz.
Read it - and get some multiple choice questions for testing comprehension of the text and then
you get your test result in comparison to all participants before.
Amazing results even on first attempt. See below my first two test results (english texts).
Link to your own test here: Test Yourself | Spritz

No need..


..to take the extra thick reading binoculars ( @ratfink )
because the window can display running texts on small devices up to large billboards in the street:
Here the Time Square Billboard in New York with a Spritz text panel

So we will see maybe such text presenters in public vehicules like trains, bus or planes as well as
where many people are waiting in stations, shops etc.
Even on tv screens to show the informations quickly - one could change from band news to word news.

About speed settings

Tested here different languages and looked for adequate settings:
A language with long words needs often a setting with less words per minute.
This helps to stay on track and get the content of the article.
Interestingly the slowing down is not proportionally to the overall total of characters.
This is a result of what the team detected when researching: 80 percent of the
time to read a block of text is used to move the eyes to the next reading position.
Only 20% are used to get the word to process. So the brain is not overly used
when reading block texts.. aka feed the brain quicker and it still has not reached
100%.
Trying now to lift the speed and comment then after a time using it.

Experience in Reading

It depends very much on long experience in reading: people used to read a lot every day
are capable to get more and longer words on one eye shift when block reading.
The best example are the children: they can even with Spritz not read in a very fast mode
as their eyes are not trained to get the bigger picture (sic! - like in trading).
But for sure to train on the Spritz automatic window even children will make strong progress
in no time.

I'm grateful for your thoughts Mr G. I may have to check it out.

Just this weekend I had to enforce an ancient Anglo-Saxon eye strain cure, 48hrs strict sex, wine, sleep and food only, no LCD panels allowed. It always worked well for Middle England in the Medieval Times, especially as temperatures were warmer so we could grow our own grapes and wear less clothes.

Travel Well

A return of an idea developed by Bob Brown almost a hundred years ago in his 'Readies', which were inspired by the way ticker-tape machines spat out numbers. He actually came out with an anthology of work specially written for the Readie machine that included quite a number of High Modernist writers. Needless to say, the invention didn't catch on.

READIES.org : User's Manual

I think myself that most people first need to learn how to read more slowly - they generally go far too fast and have no awareness of what they've missed. That was my main labor with students....

You are right in some points..
There are texts WITH CONTENT - and there are more texts without any content.
Speeding through all information served on a day one has to make decisions about what is important and what is not.

So - taking the old Pareto rule (as economist I had mentioned that one regularly) 80% of given information
is useless and can be overread or ignored.
To find the relevant information on certain questions is crucial and needs sometimes to spade more
ground as previewed. All this leads to "optimize" the finding strategy - aka "Pareto Optimum".
