How to become much faster at reading, while also maintaining acceptable comprehension?

I read 240 WPM which is about average. I have so much to read, I won't get through it all if I stay a readlet. Watched some YouTube videos and people are saying many of the speed reading techniques are bullshit. Like extending your peripheral vision to read more words simultaneously in a broad stroke is apparently not possible. Not vocalizing the words you read apparently significantly reduces comprehension. Another technique is to selectively skim some parts you deem to be less important while assuming you will still understand the gist of what has been written when you read the rest, which is kind of a sleazy way of "reading" faster. I literally want to read the entire text FASTER. The fuck do I do here fellow niggas?

Reading.
But faster.

Side strategy; why not try audiobooks at 150% speed while you do chores/vidja/etc?

Speed reading doesn't really exist. What exists is 1. some people read a bit faster than others and 2. skipping words. Number 2 is the thing that makes a "spead reader". Highly redundant writing is good for "spead reading", math papers not so much.

Multitasking doesn't really exist, aside from repetitive simple movements. So it's a bad idea to play any game that isn't a dumb grind, but then why play that in the first place? Doing simple chores and exercises while listening is OK.

Not everything I read has an audio version, like research papers.

Thought as much. Oh well.

I've always wondered if something like this could train people to read faster? I sometimes use it when I want to get the gist of a long article that's difficult to skim.

You can adjust the speed, too.
