comment Is it possible to improve reading speed and visual comprehension by doing exercises?
@Indolering What i tried to ask in my question before Jeromy's edit was "is it possible to store text blocks as visual images or in any other way in memory to access and iterate over them later, without memorizing. I can't remember many things i read and i can't build relations in my mind succesfully while reading.For this purpose, do you think the exercise i mentioned might help?".Not having any background in cognitive sciences, i just waited to see if Jeromy's is the correct way to ask about this subject, or may the solution to my problem not be the one i'm chasing after.

Well, i went ahead and wrote a simple RSVP application for chrome chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/… to improve my reading speed. Proves nothing yet, and it might be implemented poorly. I've managed to speed up my reading by forcing myself to capture as much as i can see in a small fraction of time. Unfortunately, at least for me, being able to read in high speed seems to have nothing to do with comprehension. That's why i'm trying to improve my visual memory, hoping it helps to be able to store, relate and access more information.
