Yes, You Too Can Read at 1000 Words Per Minute
Ever wondered how to read faster. Here is a solution that will allow you to read 1000 words per minute. Spritz, a Boston based start-up, is developing a technology that would enable you to read up to 1000 words per minutes. Spritz’s mission is to change the way people read and make communication faster, easier, and more effective.
With Spritz, which is coming to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Gear 2 watch, words appear one at a time in rapid succession. This allows you to read at speeds of between 250 and 1,000 words per minute. The typical college-level reader reads at a pace of between 200 and 400 a minute.
What Spritz does is manipulate the format of the words to more appropriately line them up with the eye’s natural motion of reading. The “Optimal Recognition Point” (ORP) is slightly left of the center of each word, and is the precise point at which our brain deciphers each jumble of letters. The unique aspect of Spritz is that it identifies the ORP of each word, makes that letter red and presents all of the ORPs at the same space on the screen. In this way, our eyes don’t move at all as we see the words, and we can therefore process information instantaneously rather than spend time decoding each word.
Try it for yourself.
You just read 250 words per minute.
This is 250 words per minute. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone is 76,944 words long. At this rate you could read the entire book in just over 5 hours.
What about 350 words per minute?
350 words per minute doesn’t seem that much faster. 3 hours and 40 minutes to finish Potter.
Wow! Now 500 words?
Now it’s getting harder to follow. Probably takes time to get used to. If you could keep up with this for two and a half hours, you could read Harry Potter from cover to cover. Amazing, isn’t it?
Want to try for more speed? Go to http://www.spritzinc.com/blog/ and click on the spritz button to start reading at your preferred speed. The site currently allows up to 600 words per minutes. With little more practice you can read 1000 words per minute too.
