What is speed reading?
The term speed reading originally referred only to techniques which helped people read ‘normally’ (sequentially) but faster. These included techniques such as reducing the number of fixations (time your eyes stop to focus on a word) per line and eye patterns (zig-zag, super-reading, etc) for looking down a page for hot spots of key information.
