LineReading

– The Amount of the words (chunk) to be Highlighted.

– The option to start each chunk at the start of the sentences is not available for this training.

Training purpose:

The possibility of flash reading is not available for reading a paperback newspaper or book. For reading them is necessary to “flash reading” and to move the eyes as fast as possible in order to read fast. This program is designed to train the speed of the eyes to help the user to utilize the flash reading in paper based documents.                                                                                                          This tool is ideal for practicing the reading for the tests as IELTS and TOEFL.                                                                                                     LineReading

My  Recommendation

For optimising the use of the program we recommend to start first with the flash reading:

1. First start with a speed and chunk that you feel comfortable with.

2. Start to increase gradually the speed and the words in the chunk. For example if you started with 300 words per minute (300 WPM) you can increase the speed by 10 words (310 WPM) the next day. Do this for one week reading at least 3 scripts per day and the 2 week try to increase the chunk size, for example from 1 word to 2 words.

3. Once you feel comfortable “flash reading” you could try the “Line reading” and start to train to read faster along one line.

This will help you on your reading speed, and comprehension of any text. Enjoy Shaks.ws, the free online tool for increasing your reading speed.
