How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.
So now, we should also be reading more quickly? And the pleasure of reading at the speed we want, we need, without the question of the rapidity as a preoccupation cloudering our reading?
Zut quoi. Do we have to be more efficient even in our leisures?!?
Vous m’emmerdez sacrément, Spritz, je lirai à la vitesse qui me convient, je n’ai pas à être compétitive dans ma manière de profiter d’un livre, ni à me demander si j’aurais pu le lire plus vite.
