    I was skeptical but holy crap, that actually works. I wonder if there's a browser plugin for it.

    I feel like an outlier. The second format took me longer, because some of the longer words I kept treating as two different words.

    I can polish through both equally as fast. Speed reading FTW?

    This. The right side totally breaks my speed reading.

    I have a dyslexic kid. Always interested in tricks, this seems like it could be useful.

    Same, the bolding completely screwed with me. Left side probably 3x faster than right side.

    I'm guessing you don't have trouble focusing on the one on the left?

    When I look at left it almost feels like my eyes are wobbling, words floating around, I just can't focus on any of it (so I kind of read with my peripheral vision if that makes sense) and this is why I have a hard time reading stuff on computers. But on the right I instantly fixate on the bolded parts and can speed read through it no problem and retain it too.

    im same with birdman, between my eyes and ADD i hate reading stuff on computers, right side helps to focus and keep my position but move through quicker.

    This employs a similar principle to speed reading, doesn't it?

    That would be an explanation of why it fucks w/ some people. It's trying to force the reader to speed read, and it may not be compatible with the way someone's already learned it. If the bolded letters are not the same letters (or groups of words) your brain normally isolates when you're speed reading, it takes more cycles to resolve what you're looking at.

    Yeah I think that's pretty much it. Those of us that already speed read are already doing the things it's trying to force you to do, so the bolding mechanism screws with our ingrained method.

    So, would it be considered a thinly veiled brag to say "I read same speed"?

    we know how fast you can read it, but how much do you bill to read it?

    Took me an hour to do the legal research behind the meaning of the words...so I guess my hourly rate of $400?

    realistically speaking, how long/hard would it be for me to go back to school and become a lawyer? lol

    law and accounting are two excellent choices for education, even if you don't want to be a lawyer or an accountant long term as a career. The trick is to have the knowledge that a law/accounting education gives you, but the ability to not behave like a lawyer or accountant when it comes to business.
