Version: 4.05RAM 4 is a small freeware device for presenting word-groups sequentially at a pace chosen by the user.
Operating System: Windows
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.
Load a simple text file, that is, one that Windows Notepad can handle.
