Speed reading involves the use of multiple specialized techniques to help you digest large amounts of content in a fast manner. Speed reading incorporates such skills as skimming, scanning, meta guiding, chunking, and minimizing subvocalization to improve reading speeds. The end goal of gaining speed reading as a skill is so you can effectively navigate large amounts of text in a shorter period of time than traditional reading mechanisms. Whether for work, school, or personal growth, speed reading makes rapid recognition of content possible without negating comprehension. No matter what speed you currently read at, training options are available to make speed reading possible.
