So it's come to my attention that some people do not hear at least some of the words they read in their heads as they read, and also that some people do not get a steady stream of imagery from their reading either, as I do in both cases. Someone else I asked said they saw visualizations of the letters and words they were reading in their mind's eye, but not imagery relating to the scenes they were reading about. What about you? Do you hear the sounds of the words? In whose voice? Different voices for different characters? Sound effects where appropriate? Do you get a sense of imagery? When you come across something that's not described very well, do you have to pause and come up with some visualization or explanation that makes sense? Do you see the text itself in your mind as well as on the page? Do you analyze the ways the author is using language as you go along? How do any of these things affect your reading speed, do you think?
