The Nine Major Benefits Of

Using Proportional Reading

For All Average and Challenged Readers


Here are the nine areas of improvement that you can experience from using the Proportional Reading (PR) approach for reading textbooks and novels and any other assigned reading. All of this can be done on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, or your Mac desktop or laptop. We will show you where to explore further each of these nine areas by going to the related movies and articles on our website:

1. You will see how to immediately improve your reading speed and comprehension of textbooks and novels to the NORMAL READING SPEED of spoken speech.

a. You will see how this looks on iOS devices or Mac computers.

b. You will learn to read by punctuation intervals and to relate these punctuation intervals to each other within a sentence.

c. You will learn to use audio memory.

d. You will learn to use video memory.

e. You will learn to understand the questions each sentence is asking and then answering as it goes along.

  1. 2. You will learn how to quickly further increase your reading speed and comprehension when reading your textbooks with this program, at reading speeds up to 500 words per minute and above.

  2. a. Read and pause only on the longer words and on the words with punctuation points, using your peripheral vision for the shorter words.

  3. b. Use your internal voice to make sense of each punctuation interval as you go along and as you read the last word in the interval.

  4. c. Pause at the end of each interval to let the sound catch up and think about the meaning of that interval.

3. You will develop transferable skills for reading any book; the more you practice the more you will improve.

4. You will see how to immediately increase your focus and concentration.

a. With the inline, simultaneous presentation of voice, text and graphics

b. With the use of earphones

c. With voice accompaniment speed that matches your brain processing speed

d. With proper lighting

e. With proper reading posture

5. You will see how to concurrently improve your hearing to where you do not need to take notes just to record what was said for later understanding. With practice, this tool will enable you to quickly and correctly hear and understand what your mentors and peers are saying to you.

6. You will improve your writing.

a. By having something to say. This is achieved by better understanding what you have read.

b. By note taking and text quoting, using copy and paste, which involves no handwriting or typing

c. By Audio Editing papers, which you have written

7. You will improve your vocabulary by quickly and easily making vocabulary and definition lists as you read, which involve no handwriting or typing, and which you can play back in voice and text, or just re-read normally.

8.  You will be able to improve your speaking.

a. With proper decoding of words using the Reading Tool

b. With interactive voice and text practice by phrase and sentence to read clearly what is printed, and not add “s” sounds.

c. With interactive voice and text practice by both phrase and sentence to add pauses at commas, semicolons, periods and other punctuation marks.

d. To read and practice “Scripts”, with interactive voice and text by both phrase and sentence. This is preparation for actual role playing sessions.

9. You will be able to use advanced review techniques.

a. By optionally reading each sentence twice, saying in your head how each sentence will end before you hear the sound the second time through. This is called inline review.

b. By re-reading the text book chapter a second or third time at faster and faster speed

c. By reading your own notes and outlines with this program

d. By reading your teacher’s notes with this program
