What Spritz does differently (and brilliantly) is manipulate the format of the words to more appropriately line them up with the eye’s natural motion of reading.

The “Optimal Recognition Point” (ORP) is slightly left of the center of each word, and is the precise point at which our brain deciphers each jumble of letters.

The unique aspect of Spritz is that it identifies the ORP of each word, makes that letter red and presents all of the ORPs at the same space on the screen.

    At least for me, it was more tiring to read text like this. At first it was ok, but after going through all the steps, I noticed an afterimage that stayed with me for quite some time. All in all, I was reading the texts for only a few minutes, so reading anything for longer would most likely cause an even stronger effect.
