    You must learn to skip words like I do.

    is there really a difference if you still understand the whole sentence.

    When I read I just get the sentence or the meaning of the sentence. I never notice words or punctuation unless they're wrong, or missing, in which case the sentence doesn't make sense anyway.You just don't notice details after a while.

    do you mean to say that there is no voice in your head vocalizing what youre reading?

    Personally, my 'inside voice' only reads words that are four letters or bigger. That's what I meant by skipping words.
