Voicing the words,as you write or read...How to stop it?
It wastes a lot of energy, and limits the speed....
any other tricks than singing... cause I also need to comprehend the matter
I also tried to learn speed reading by myself with books/articles/websites etc. But my progress was very slow. In my opinion professional software is the way to go.
Here are two suggestions:
I like EyeQ best, because it has better structured exercises.
To answer your question: The apps have exercises like chunk reading, widening your field of vision and pacing. You can do each exercise on your own, but it is more effective if the program forces you to follow the rules. During the courses you will read faster and thus give up voicing automatically.
Besides humming or singing while you read, you can also learn to recognize chunks of words at a time. I took a speed reading class that did exactly that - once you can recognize and comprehend three to five words at a time, you can skip the vocalization.
Let's look at this paragraph again in chunks:
Etc. Basically, take a speed reading course and learn chunking. They should throw different, but commonly found "chunks" at you, the only difference being specific nouns. The idea is that you can recognize the chunk's meaning and focus on the nouns or specific differences.
EDIT - About halfway through this page is a description of how you can learn chunking on your own:
Not same but similar question asked before in here. Take a look How to stop talking LOUDLY to myself?
First of all, this situation is bad thing for you. But It's not always bad. It's %100 up to you. I think, for you,
But It's a problem for you, so here is some topics;
As for your vocalizations, I wouldn't necessarily think of them as an issue that needs to be fixed. The most important book I've read recently was "Your Brain at Work" and it mentioned many techniques such as vocalizing and sketching recently assimilated information to involve more regions of the brain during the process of synthsizing the "new" input data. Verbalizing it isn't such a bad thing.
Also, in terms of speed reading... the single most important tool to the speed reader is the finger. Move it fast and focus. A number of courses are available such as those mentioned above.
One of the things that really helped me speed read and have realistic expectations was reading 10 days to Faster Reading by Abby Marks Beale (find her on amazon) ...
I became a fan .. one of things that she recently came out with is "10 Minutes to Faster Reading" - a free pdf download .. really good for those who are starting out and goes over some of these issues .. such as sub-vocalization.
If you are interested you can also take her Rev It Up Reading online speed reading course.
Anyway here is the link to download her free ebook!
