GQuiz is a generic question/answer drilling program.

GnomeRSVP is a "Rapid Serial Visual Projector" similar to products like AceReader. In this dynamic representation of text, each word is flashed on the screen one at a time in succession. The reader is less inclined to "oralize" the text, rather the reader interprets whole words as meaningful written symbols. Automatic re-reading of adjacent previous text is therefore rendered impossible. This results in much higher reading speeds than are possible with standard techniques.
