One of the most frequent questions we are asked is, "Will the enhanced reading skills I learn from Dynamic Reading enable me to read from the web, or normal printed material better?"
The answer is a resounding unequivocal YES to both!
Why? Let’s recall that Dynamic Reading teaches how to unlearn the habits of Slow Readers and learn the habits and skills of Advanced Readers. This simply means that with Dynamic Reading you will learn to see and read more than one word at a time, without vocalizing words as they are read.
Although this skill is learned on the computer, from a screen, it (the skill) is absolutely transferable to reading print, to reading billboards, or to reading any form in which print is presented for the eye to see.
Another common question asked is, "What is the difference between reading from the computer screen and from print material?" The general consensus of various experts is that reading from a screen is slower than reading from print.
Our view is that the basic level of your reading skills is the most important determining factor, i.e., if a person is a slow reader reading from print material, then that person will also be a slow reader when reading from a computer screen.
Our experience and research indicates that it is too broad of a statement to say that reading from a screen is slower than reading from print. We believe that in either medium, it depends on what content is being presented and how that content is presented. The similarities and differences between content for the web is compared to writing for print. There is no question that guidelines for good writing for the web, and for print, are beginning to coincide. This is good news for all of us... Web and Print Readers.
The guidelines for writing for the Web vs. Writing for print highlight the developing science which is devoting to making reading from the Web easier than reading from print. Let’s review seven basic guidelines:
Guidelines for Web Writing
Guidelines for Print Material Writing
In conclusion, many of us read as much (or more) text from computer screens than from printed material. Other than eye strain from either medium, there are more similarities than differences between reading from computer screens vs. printed material. The reason: Web Writers are focused on providing content in an efficient and effective format that ensures maximum readability, better understanding, thus business results. Because of the competition between the two mediums, Print Writers are employing the same guidelines to ensure optimum communication with their readers.
The competition between the two mediums will ultimately benefit all readers. Remember, with Dynamic Reading, you will learn Advanced Reading skills that permit you to see and read groups of words with each single eye fixation. Then, you will be better prepared to read, in either medium, better and faster with improved comprehension and recall.
We GUARANTEE you will at least double your reading speed and improve your comprehension and recall with only 15-30 minutes of practice every other day for a few weeks.
