“Overclocking Your Audio Learning”

07Aug07

Hey Gang!

I apologize for the lack of new content yesterday, but it was a holiday (in Canada) and I promised myself to stay away from the computer as much as possible.

Wouldn’t it be great to crunch 6 hours of audio material into a 90-100 minutes? Just think how many more audio books or podcasts you could squeeze into your week. According to Steve Pavlina at ‘Steve’s Pavlina’s Personal Development Blog’, we have the ability to think faster than people talk. He suggests that we could speed up the rate of listening to  our favorite audio by around three to four times normal and still retain all the material we listen to.

While it sounds like it might work in theory, I will have to try this out before I give it an endorsement. If any of you use have tried this technique, let us know if it worked for you!

An excerpt:

Did you know that if you have 60 minutes of audio material to listen to, you can very easily digest the material in 30 minutes or less?  And with practice you can even get it done in less than 15 minutes.

Modern media players can play audio at faster rates than the default, and they’ll automatically adjust the pitch so the voices sound faster but not squeaky.  Some players provide this feature via a plug-in.  Windows Media Player has this feature built in.
