Speed Listening and Reading the Bible

September 8, 2011

Today, I began working on increasing my reading speed. I decided to use a two-pronged approach.

First, using an audio MP3 CD with the KJV on it, I listened to Exodus 33-34 played by Windows Media Player on a high-speed setting of 2.000

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

while I also read the same chapters in my open Bible.

Second, I used a computer program that I made to speed read the same chapters (approximately 1800 words) at a speed of 663 words per minute.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At that speed, reading these chapters took me around 3 minutes to read.

Using this dual approach to read the Bible, my goal is to train both my eyes to read text faster and my ears to hear a faster rate of reading without any loss of comprehension in either way of receiving information. I hope to increase gradually my overall reading speed through this program so that I can read both important materials faster and less important materials even faster.

I also hope to speed listen to large sections of the Bible as a part of my exposing myself thoroughly to all the Scripture every year.
