Imagine if you could read 20-35% faster, while maintaining or improving overall comprehension. Readability Consortium members Readability Matters, University of Central Florida, Adobe and Google are working to make this a reality for everyone. Tacy is joined by lead researchers, Ben Sawyer, Ph.D., from the University of Central Florida, and Zoya Bylinskii, Ph.D., from Adobe’s Creative Intelligence Lab, to discuss how matching people with their most compatible reading format can greatly improve reading speed and comprehension.
Individualized reading formats stand to revolutionize reading for everyone, across every age and profession – from helping students read more efficiently and effectively to cutting down the time it takes for physicians to read patient files before treating them to helping drivers spend less time reading their GPS and more time looking at the road.
