In academics,  chunking information  is known   to reduce   users' cognitive load.
Which really means   it makes it easier   for people to read.

NOT-SO-GOOD READERS UNDERSTAND MORE

why does Asym exist?

Asym was developed to help people who
self-identify as slow readers


We discovered Asym also helps regular and excellent readers
