  1. Subvocalization during reading is saved by such methods as cranial trepanation, late stages of encephalitis, as well as circumstances in which you do not have time to read a book. Speaking is how the brain reads. It is impossible to get rid of it.

    Even deaf people “speak” — while reading, the brain, identifying a word, automatically remembers the gesture associated with it.

    Fortunately, you don't need to get rid of it. Subvocalization not only does not interfere with reading, but also helps the assimilation of material at a reading speed slightly higher than relaxed-since pronunciation is also how the brain remembers something.

    Not to mention the fact that for fiction, pronouncing is necessary to fully appreciate the language of the book (Joyce is generally better read aloud), whereas in the case of technical literature, skipping is more effective than reading line by line.

  2. It is believed that you can get rid of pronunciation by singing a melody in parallel with reading or even making sounds like “bz-z-z-z-z”. Since it is impossible to simultaneously buzz and pronounce words, the former will replace the latter.
