Reading Acceleration Machine

Program: Reading Acceleration Machine Version:4.0
Author: Claude Pavur
Website: [ http://www.slu.edu/colleges/AS/languages/classical/ram/ram.html ]
Download: [ 519 KB ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8.0
Description: RAM 4 is a small freeware device for presenting word-groups sequentially at a pace chosen by the user. It is a tachistoscope ("rapid-viewer") that supports efficient and rhythmic reading, rehearsal of text-comprehension, and acceleration in reading speed. It facilitates the repetition that has long been known to be essential for language-learning. RAM can be used for vocabulary-learning, text-file viewing or proofing, speed-reading in one's native language, and rehearsal of texts for comprehension or memorization. It is primarily designed to help language learners practice texts through the sequential delivery of word-groups to a monitor screen. The device will be especially useful in conjunction with an approach to language-learning that stresses the importance of mastering lexical phrases rather than individual vocabulary words.
