We teach you how to master a new type of reading. We do not sell software. We offer training in how to use the software that you already have on your iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Mac laptop, or Mac desktop computer,  or on your PC (including software that you can download for free). The first part of the training teaches setup and operation of the controls for this new type of reading. The second part of the training teaches you how to improve your reading using these controls and this new approach. You will learn how to use this approach to read almost any article on the Internet or any textbook or novel at the speed you think, up to and above 500 words per minute. Besides completing assigned reading, you will overcome the 18 Bad Reading Habits and develop transferrable skills for reading regular books.

What you will experience in our approach to reading is a new way to experience a lecture, combined with a new way to read. Imagine going to a lecture  where you get to choose the speed at which the professor speaks. Secondly, as the professor speaks you also read each sentence, and just ahead of the sound, pausing at the commas and periods for the sound to catch up. Thus, the sound acts to immediately correct any reading errors, and completely removes any reading anxiety. At the end of each sentence, the sound pauses automatically for as long as you wish, for you to think about what you have just read for as long as you want. Then when you are ready, you press a single key to proceed. You can also repeat any sentence as many times as you want before proceeding. You are in complete control. You proceed with full comprehension and focus at the speed your mind processes thought. With a little practice, you will quickly increase your speed.
