Eye-Hop helps to reduce sub-vocalization (pronouncing words in our head) and increase reading speed beyond the "sub-vocalization barrier", which is the speed at which we cannot read beyond with any comprehension.
Only Eye-Hop allows us to read faster than those speeds, by getting us used to processing 5 to 8 words at a glance, instead of only one word at a time. We get all the meaning, but without pronouncing all the words.
Eye-Hop works by arranging text in parallel columns containing 2–5 words each, ‘hopping’ with your eye from the middle of one column to the middle of the other, with a parallel movement of the forefinger.
Arranging text in columns with the use of a pointer (typically a finger, or a pen/pencil) helps guide eye movement, helping to reduce regressions and increase the visual span of reading text.
Consistent practice (20 - 40 minutes per day) develops the ability to catch increasingly more words at one single glance, thereby increasing reading speed without jeopardising comprehension.
