They’ve been doing that for years. They used to call it the “fine print”.

I find that "bionic script" to be easier and faster to read, and my eyes need all of the help that they can get these days.

I never heard of it before and when first reading using the bionic script, it was actually distracting to me.

If it helps others, then that's great.

This is very good.
I taught reading to 8th graders.
English is the only language printed where you can read the bottom 1/2 half of the letters and get the word.
Then you teach people to read by going down the street without stopping at every house.

I had clients with reading difficulty and this is just what the doctor ordered.

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

.....Speed reading seems to be the ability to see words by their shape instead of reading every letter or syllable. If a student can speed read he can probably pass his exam with only a fraction of study time.

... just wondering how quickly people could read the words "as a whole".... with no context?    Is it really wouthit porbelm?   My hunch is that they would have some difficulty, but I dunno.

For I guy whose spelling is way not good reading Don C post was quite easy. I don’t know what this means.

 

You know Fig Can you direct me to a web site that you read that uses this method? I may try this on my Grandaughter she tends to wonder and get distracted when reading. Is there a computer/app that can change text to this format?
