Free online speed reading training for expanding your field of
view with "Shultz tables"
These free online exercises can help expand your peripheral awareness
and promote increased reading speed.
The Idea behind this free online Speed Reading Program
Our eyes have their clearest vision in the central zone of view. Everything
that lies outside this central zone is seen as a frog would see it. This broad field
of vision makes the searching process shorter. It is possible to widen our field
and quicken our vision by using "Shultz tables".
Work with Shultz tables develops three-dimensional (parallel) attention. The
symbols can be perceived as one picture, (non- consecutively).
How to use this flash?
First left click on the red Go arrow in the lower right corner of this window and the Shultz Table will appear. Your main strategy is to softly look at the red dot in the center of the table
and continue to see this central point while at the same time noticing all numbers
on the corners of the table.
With each left mouse click on the red dot in the center of the page,
the numbers will be altered. With your peripheral awareness engaged as you gently
rest your focus on the red dot, you will notice each alteration of the numbers as
you continue to left click on the mouse.
However, if your attention lapses, some of the alterations of the number pairs
may not be noticed, and they may not appear to have been altered by their respective
This training increases peripheral vision and assists you in raising the velocity
of your reading to a speed reading level.

Look at other free online
speed reading trainings. Most text contains 50% unneeded words. Remove
50% of the letters
and you can still read the text. If you understand this simple idea, your
speed reading will improve dramatically. The human mind reads the words as if they
were Egyptian hieroglyphics. You can
mix the letters and
read the text. Understand this simple idea and your speed reading will improve.
You can read the text by
groups of words. If
you strip the text, you
can still read the text.
Use the Schultz Tables just 15 minutes every other day for a few weeks, and you
will double or triple your reading speed and comprehension. The Full version of
"Speed reading is not magic" software can be found
here. The "Speed Reading Is Not Magic"
Course is the result of more than five years of research.
Creates a level of confidence, within minutes, that engages your ability
to learn how to read dramatically more effectively.
Teaches you how to see and read groups of words (with a single eye-fixation)
at 3 times your current reading rate.
Demonstrates the importance of phrase familiarity to convey units of meaning.
Focuses on expanding your peripheral vision.
Creates phrases (units of meaning).
You have complete control.
You decide the number of characters, words, or phrases that will be displayed
in the exercises, as well as the flash speed at which they will be presented.
Limited Perceptual Span
When we first learned to read, we took note of every single letter. Instead of
reading cat, we read c-a-t; limited perceptual span becomes l-i-m-i-t-e-d -- p-e-r-c-e-p-t-u-a-l
--s-p-a-n. As we developed our reading skill, we learned to spot words or parts
of words and our reading speed increased dramatically . The same process happens
as we learn to speed read. If you only read one word at a time, this is considerably
slower than taking in four or five words at once.
Ways to improve how many words you take in at once.
Eye Focus - Prime Reason for Slow Reading.
This means that you have trained your eyes to look at a tiny section of a page,
often only one word. You hardly use your peripheral vision at all. Your eyes are
capable of seeing everything on the page at a glance, yet you have been trained
to try to focus on each tiny section of the page that contains a letter.
Compare this to your ability to walk into a room and take in all or most of what's
there with a quick glance. This is how fast your brain and vision are capable of
working. Yet we have been trained from infancy to focus first on individual letters,
and then individual words. Then the training stopped.
The next logical part of reading training is instantly grasping groups of words.
With more and more training the groups can be bigger and bigger. You do not need
to focus on every individual inch of a movie screen to know that the evil villain
has snatched the screaming heroine. If you did try to focus like that, your understanding
and recall of the action, plot and even the scenery would be significantly reduced.
You will see that you can learn to "look" at a page and be reading, with almost
the same process that you look at a movie screen. If you practice with the drills
that increase the amount of text that you can read simply by looking, you will be
amazed at how much you can take in. Simple drills in the next section can quickly
"soften" your focus to include groups of words. This allows you to read more quickly
with better comprehension and less effort.
