Most readers in the world probably ask this question to themselves many times if they heard the speed reading techniques.
How does speed reading work ?
Do speed reading techniques really impact reading speed or reading comprehension ?
If there is speed reading, why do most people use normal reading techniques instead of speed reading techniques ?
Why does the Traditional School System don’t teach speed reading ?
You may ask these following questions to yourself, because as a Speed Reading Coach, I face these questions many times. People always tend to ask these questions whether there is speed reading or not.
Yes, speed reading is real, and speed reading techniques actually work to increase your reading speed and comprehension.
With only basic, and effective techniques, you can double, triple, or quadruble your reading speed easily. You can also increase your reading comprehension easily in the long term. Speed reading techniques allow you to do it.
Visual Placer is one of the main effects on reading. When you learn reading in a traditional school system, you haven’t learned visual placer technique in a traditional school system. That is a big red flag on your reading life, because if you don’t use visual placer while reading, you won’t be able to support your eye movements while reading.
You have to support your eye movements while reading for effective reading.
Because of not using visual placer, most readers waste their eye movements while reading, and this causes you to lose your time and keep your reading comprehension at a low level. It also keeps your reading speed on low speed as well.
While reading, the readers who don’t use visual placer get distracted easily from atmosphere distractions.
However, speed readers always use visual placer while reading and because of visual placer, there are a lot of positive impacts on their reading life.
Speed readers benefit their time with maximum efficiency because once they use visual placer for reading, they support their eye movements while reading.
That is critically important in reading because once they support their eye movements, they don’t get distracted easily into the reading process.
They also keep their reading speed and reading comprehension on a high level. Visual placer has serious impacts on your reading life. Visual Placer is one of the main factors why there are huge reading differences between normal readers and speed readers.
Subvocalization and Vocalization are also main factors as well why most people read with low reading speed.
Subvocalization is the repetition from your inside when you read something. For example; when you read something, you repeat what you read from your inside. And there will be a little voice between your mouth and your brain. This little voice between your mouth and brain is Subvocalization.
The reason why most readers have this Subvocalization problem is because of the traditional school system. The Traditional School System teaches you reading by doing Subvocalization, and Vocalization. And these two factors are the main reasons as well why most people read with low reading speed.
Vocalization is the voice that goes to your outside. When you learn how to read, the traditional school system was teaching you reading firstly by vocalization. You were vocalizing the words from your outside, while reading.
That is a terrible and wrong reading model, because this situation also caused you to do Subvocalization during your reading process.
Subvocalization is one of the main impacts of why most readers aren’t happy with their reading speed.
Subvocalization only causes you to waste time while reading, and subvocalization also causes you to have a low reading comprehension while reading.
You have adopted this technique due to the traditional school system but subvocalization problems can be overcomed extremely easily.

Speed readers either don’t do Subvocalization or they minimize Subvocalization while reading. And thanks to this habit, they keep their reading speed and reading comprehension on a high level.
Be aware that you have to eliminate subvocalization permanently in your reading life, because if you don’t eliminate Subvocalization completely, you only waste time while reading, and Subvocalization will impact your reading life extremely negatively.
Peripheral Vision is also one of the factors that why most readers read with low reading speed.
Peripheral Vision is your vision area that whatever you see in front of you, that is your peripheral vision, and that is also your vision area while reading.
Normal reading speed range affects your peripheral vision extremely negatively while reading, because most normal readers waste their peripheral vision while reading, and this causes you to waste your time and your reading comprehension.
Normal Readers waste most of their peripheral vision while reading. However, speed readers benefit their peripheral vision with highest efficiency.
Normal readers spend a lot of unnecessary time on the gaps of the book or reading material while reading. They don’t begin to read on effective areas on the page. However, speed readers don’t waste their time and their peripheral vision, and they benefit their peripheral vision with highest efficiency.

There are also other factors as well on reading, and these other factors impact your reading speed either negatively or positively.
For example; atmosphere distractions can also affect your reading speed either positively or negatively.
If there are a lot of noise distractions or visual material distraction at the place where you read, it directly impacts your reading speed, and comprehension. It is important to not have any distraction while reading.
It is also important to protect yourself from these distractions while reading.
