There is Flash Reading technique where the text is cut into small pieces. Each piece flashes up in the center of the computer screen.

A red point is placed on each window. Learners have to be aware of the red points while reading in the windows.

Publisher's description

By using "Magic Speed Reading", you can increase your facility for fast reading. You needn't practice special exercises; it is enough just to read. Habitually returning to what is already read, that usually decreases the speed of reading, no longer happens. Reading each word individually becomes unnecessary because skillful fast readers do not individualize the text when reading at high speeds. You become accustomed to grasping a whole word or a group of words at one glance. In this way you activate your peripheral vision facilities. You study how to read without haste, because the program responds to the speed you have chosen and does not react to your haste. The "Speed Reading Is Not Magic" inclues 15 different computerized trainings. Visit for more infornation.
