Welcome To The
Gnome Rapid Serial Visual Projector

(click image for larger version)

What is Rapid Serial Visual Projection?
Rapid Serial Visual Projection is the process of blasting words onto the screen. In this dynamic representation of text, each word is flashed on the screen one at a time in succession. The reader is less inclined to "oralize" the text, rather the reader interprets whole words as meaningful written symbols. Automatic re-reading of adjacent previous text is therefore rendered impossible. This results in much higher reading speeds than are possible with conventional techniques.
