"Reading without vowel letters"
How the speed reading program works:
- Click on the "Open" button and select the text for training.
- Click on the "Dell vowel letters" button and the program will remove all
the vowels from the text.
- For viewing the source text, click on the "Prompt" button.
- For saving text, click on the "Save" button.
This exercises demonstrate how the brain functions. Usually, words
are not read letter by letter. The reader recognizes whole words. The absence of
vowels in most cases does not reduce the understanding of the text. A look at the
word (the word-combination) is enough in order to recognize it.
The essence of these software exercises
Approximately 75% of the information of any text is surplus to requirements.
See for yourself. Delete all the vowels from this text. Try to read it. Was it successful?
The Ancient Greeks and the present-day Arabs do not use vowels.
By reading all of the letters in a word, you are slowing you reading
Four portions of useful information contain one portion of garbage.
I gss you cn rd ths txt :) wtht vwls. I guess you can read this

Whilst doing these exercises try to understand how you read. How
does the information appear? How do your eyes move?
Speed reading tips
Read the introduction and conclusion, then go back and read the whole assignment.
Or read the first line in every paragraph in order to get an impression of how the
ideas progress, then go back and read from the beginning.
Look through the entire book at a slower rate. Look for structure
and organization as well as key concepts. Often, the best way to extract key concepts
is by recognizing repeated phrases, graphics, and typefaces. Once you finish previewing,
write a quick summary of the book, not to exceed half a page. This helps to solidify
the thesis and support the evidence in your mind. Sometimes a book can be left at
this stage, or specific chapters may be reviewed in depth, while the rest is left
When done effectively, previewing is short and sweet. During that
time, we clarify and refine our purpose, review the trigger words, and decide whether
to continue reading or call it quits. If we choose not to read something that does
not meet our needs or interests, it is all right.
Understanding the structure gives us something that learning theorists
call a schema, a set of expectations about what is coming up next. When we know
the structure of a written text, we become more accurate at predicting its content.
As a result, our comprehension and reading pleasure soar. Previewing gives us the
skeleton of a book or article first. During the next steps of the photo reading
the whole mind system, we add body to the skeleton.

your reading skills.
