Slow Serial Visual Presentation (SSVP)
Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (RSVP) is a computer-aided reading technique intended to increase reading speed and comprehension. But what if one decided to use RSVP tools to slow down reading instead?
Here's the experiment. First, set up one of the RSVP tools listed below. Then, set the reading speed to 20 words per minute. That's five seconds per word. See how it feels. See how reading this way affects your experience of reading. (You might even try writing after reading at this rate to see how experiencing a text at a very slow reading rate affects how you write.)
