Don't think. Don't read. Just watch and comprehend.

Aren't you afraid of missing something?
It seems like skimming, which runs the danger of misunderstanding.

It's not skimming. In fact, I get better comprehension with it than I do normally.

However, it's not ideal for reading dense works, because the app will just trudge on past complex ideas at the same rate, when normally you would have slowed down or reread.

Maybe it's a personal thing, then. I know I speak aloud (or mouth) each word when I read.

You should try to get out of that habit. Subvocalication (what you're doing) impedes reading speed and comprehension, because everything is filtered through a process which is quite a bit slower than visual recognition. Listening to music can be a good way of silencing this voice.

I think my comprehension is quite good, but, I completely agree with the slow reading speed.
I have a touch of dyslexia, self-diagnosed, and my eyes play tricks on me occasionally. By saying/mouthing the words, I assure they make sense. I also speak to myself aloud all the time. I don't do the inner-dialogue thing.
However, my short attention span may also be a factor, too. And listening to music would distract me.

Of course, if I actually read anything other than DDO and the occasional article, I would probably improve speed regardless.

Apparently, this app helps people with dyslexia and ADD the most. You might want to give it a try: https://chrome.google.com...
