[V] Text Speed Reader is a program to help you accelerate the speed at which you can read text. Words are presented to you one at a time, in the same position, stopping your eyes from having to shift and refocus on every word as they would on a normal paragraph or line. Also the human brain is much suited for handling a serial stream of data. In fact the only way your brain handles text is by breaking it up into a serial stream before parsing and interpreting it. Speed Reader pre-processes and serializes text, saving your brain from having to do it itself. Punctuation is handled, an extra pause between words occurs for commas, and semi-colons;( ",;"). And an extra two pauses occurs for periods, question marks, exclamation marks and speech marks.(".?!""). These extra pauses allow you to take a mental breath.
