Verbatim memorization and recitation recall

I’ve been looking at a few methods such as Lanier’s and Lynne Kelly’s for verbatim or near verbatim memorization. My goal is to remember a lot of material at a reasonable (faster than rote) speed, remember it for a long time, and recall it at recital-speed (while I’m hiking). Is anyone using these techniques, or others, and finding their recitation speeds unimpeded?

I understand that the rote learners have an advantage here (they learn by reciting after all) but the read, look away, recite, repeat method is a bit underpowered for my needs. (If I’m wrong, please advise)

Are you using other techniques? Mixing techniques? How do they fare in terms of accuracy, recital speed, and memorization time?


A few minutes per page

Delay in speech(Like buffering in YouTube but not as worse)

Accuracy-40% recall after 1 day-Maybe it is better than forgetting after rote memorization after one day.

This method is below -

Disclosure- It is my method,


Have a Great Day.

Any text can be memorized using the method of loci.


@aicreator @InMyMemoryWorld ive actually read both of your linked posts before starting this thread. I’m familiar with memory palace and linking systems, so the techniques im thinking about using include those. As for letter shapes, i am also considering doing something similar to that with making mozaics of each page i read.

Aicreator, is there anyway, you think, that the buffer could be removed? Besides rote practice I mean.

InMyMemoryWorld, I was curious how well you could recite with an unstopping rhythm the texts that youve memorized

I made that method similar to PAO so that it would have to work and it was good for holding a large amount of information for a short amount of time and maybe I will also need revision,

I believe that this method works by matching known artibutes of the text to the artibutes of the text stored in the human brain which then causes the person to remember more information and more information upto the text,

I have posted a link to research below which I suspect will help you,


Have a Great Day.

The method I use is very practical and you can probably memorise 13 lines with 15-20 words on each line reasonably quickly (10-15 min)

  1. repeat the page (read it with OBSERVATION) 20 times.
  2. take each sentence and convert them into 1 image and put them in a memory palace. (you can change this up depending on how long your sentences are.
  3. repeat the sentence (usually takes 3 times depending on how long your sentence is)
  4. connect the lines as you go
  5. repeat the sentences 5 times out loud (without looking) while walking through your memory palace
  6. then do it 5 times without walking through your memory palace.
  7. you have the sentence memorized y heart.
  8. to celebrate and get rid of the images memorise a bunch of numbers!!!

I’ve been doing something a bit similar except:
1.I’ve kept a huge memory palace (a trail) for all the text I’ve memorized this far.
2.I don’t stop reviewing previous sections of the text on the trail.
3.I read much further in advance to give my images more connectivity with related sections of the text.

I like that your method is so clean and efficient.
