One thing I have found that helps a lot is using a high-quality speaker system, or good headphones.
I use a Big Jambox with my computer and the difference in intelligibility is substantial.
For me, I set the JamBox for the less loud, more base sound.
Also, try raising the speed one percent at a time, going for a day or two at one speed before changing it again.

Subject: [nvda] Tips for speed reading /listening with screen readers
Hello season users of screen readers!
Advice me on this. I'm a student and require to read large texts on regular basis. Although, this is something I love doing, it would be very beneficial if I could improve my reading, or shall I say listening speed, with NVDA. I would like to retain the same
level of comprehension I have right now at higher speeds. I have gradually moved up my way to 95% without boost in NVDA, so I know it could be done. But, I'm finding it difficult to move forward. Also, beyond 95% and in boost mode Espeak MAx starts to flutter.
It is still very comprehensible, but the fluttering voice is annoying. Can you guys suggest me ways to upgrade my listening game? Do I need to switch to a different variant voice of Espeak or shall I change my synthesizer? Is there a cap to how fast can we
All suggestions are welcome!
Also let me know at what speed rates do you guys read your screen readers on/
