The only way to understand if these claims are true is by looking at the different techniques used in speed reading. And this book can help you with that.

    It is important to adjust your speed based on the material type. Speed u of the easy materials like those found in magazines and slow down on technical content that needs to be comprehended deeply. In addition, if you have a familiarity with the content you are reading then you must push yourself to read faster. You should also adjust your speed based on the purpose of reading.

You need to push yourself through material of this nature although a lot of detail may make your vision blurry hence the need to slow down.
