In these studies speed is measuring how quickly the participant recognizes the word. Subjects are not given sentences to pull meaning from, they are given words. Speed and fixation (another metric used) along with subjective measures can be very telling.

comment How do you prototype desktop app designs?
Hi @user3352464. There is no right answer to this, and any answer would be purely opinion-based. UX.SE is more suited for questions relating to a specific issue or concern relating to User Experience, which has a single (or limited) number of research based answers.

comment Not showing bootmenu
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about trouble with booting into a personal OS installation, not any specific UX issue or concern.

Hi UXGuy. Your question almost seems to be asking for us to review someone else's feedback to you and give our opinions on it. That is not really what this site is for. If you have a specific concern on a UX issue you are trying to solve, we would be happy to help!
