How Bionic Reading works.
For an active participation of our society reading and text comprehension is indispensable. In order to understand how Bionic Reading works, we need to understand how reading basically works.
Researchers Just and Carpenter have already demonstrated the most important processes and structures in a text comprehension model in 1980. Historical scientific eye movement research has existed since 1905 (E. Javal. The Physiology of Reading and Writing). Here it is described that the horizontal movements of the eyes are not continuous, but occur in a jerky form.
When a part of a word is fixed, the so-called fixation, the information is passed on to our brain so that we can compare our long-term memory with the existing representation products.
The jerky phase between the individual fixations is called saccade. During the saccade, we are unable to absorb read information and pass it on to our memory.
What Bionic Reading is.
Bionic Reading is a reading system that supports the reading flow. The eye is guided much more effectively through the text by means of typographic markups. Through the interaction of “fixation” and “saccade”, visual stimuli can be transferred to the text, which decisively changes the typeface.
The Bionic Reading reading mode can be individually adapted to the needs of each reader. Due to this flexibility, Bionic Reading allows maximum customization for every type of user.
Bionic Reading aims to play a supporting role in the information intake of set texts. We also see technological progress as an opportunity for all those who want to increase the desire to read in a loud and hectic world in a focused manner and without distraction.
We are constantly improving the product and recognize a multitude of optimizations within the areas of reading and text comprehension. Our expertise in typography and technology enables Bionic Reading to drive further user-specific improvements.
