Speed Read In Google Chrome With Jiffy Reader

What is Bionic reading

Bionic reading is a speed reading technique that allows you to read at significantly faster speeds without compromising comprehension or quality. The average person reads at around 200-250 words per minute (wpm), but with bionic reading, you can easily reach speeds of 1,000 wpm or more.

So, how does it work? The answer lies in the way our brains process information. When we read normally, we see each word individually and process it sequentially. Bionic reading, on the other hand, relies on something called the ‘grouping principle’. This allows you to group words and process them as a single unit.

Not only does this make you read faster, but it also makes you more efficient and can help improve your memory recall. If you’re looking for a way to speed up your reading and boost your comprehension, bionic reading is worth trying!
