I don't know, I have always rejected this techniques, but I can't say why. Maybe it's just that I'm too lazy and envy the people who do read with this techniques.
Or it is that this sounds too goal-oriented. Since I'm not a student any more, most of the time I read because I want to read, and only that.

I used autoscroll at the begining... but then I was pressing the page up and page down buttons more than ever before!!! This is because I don't read everything at the same speed, so I was adjusting the autoscroll speed all the time.
I finally stopped using it because I felt kind of dizzy after I stop reading. It was as if the whole world were "scrolling" on the opposite direction.
