I liked the accessibility of it. It helps, because users are able to easily maneuver throughout the software to varying levels and practice their reading at varying speeds.

After having used this software, I learned techniques and skills such as eliminating my subvocalization, which not only greatly enhanced my speed reading, but also allowed me to get more engagement in what I read.

Reinard Mortlock

The biggest problem I had was sub-vocalization, 7 Speed Reading helped a lot with techniques to improve this and substantially improve my reading speed. The application is easy to use with loads of books to read to improve your reading skills.

When I seriously exercise using the app, in no time, my reading speed goes from less than 400 to 600 and my target is 900 plus.

The pace trainer is great for getting my eyes focused and sharp. Also the word search exercise is very important, gets me searching for specific text.

Strategies for Skimming and Scanning Text

Categories: Reading Improvement Tips, Speed Reading, Speed Reading Research | Tags:

A study in 2009 done by Geoffrey Duggan and Stephen Payne of the University of Bath tracked the eye movements of people who were given a set amount of time to read through a large amount of information on a series of linked website pages. Using this study, the researchers were able to draw some conclusions about the effective use of skimming and scanning techniques, and how much information is gained and remembered while reading in this manner. The results show that it’s possible to locate and retain important data even at a high speed of scanning, and that much of the process is unconscious.

In a prior study, this unconscious process was named satisficing (Reader and Payne, p. 264). This is a term that describes the point at which a reader is “satisfied” with the amount of data they have gathered from a particular block of text – generally a paragraph, but also applied to evaluation of a page. When readers have a particular goal in mind, they skim through a paragraph of text just until they decide one of two things: (1) if the data they need are in the paragraph, so they need to stop and read more closely; or (2) if the paragraph is not immediately useful, so they can skip ahead to the next one.

Notice that although this is a mostly-unconscious process done while reading, it’s important to have a good idea of what you’re looking for before you begin the skimming and scanning process. Your eyes and your brain will be primed to look for key terms and important words in the text, which will help the underlying decision-making process of whether to slow down momentarily, or speed ahead.
