  It's informational, higher speech rate means more info in a shorter time.

But why? Why listen to something at outrageous speeds? How can you get any enjoyment out of a story or article at such speeds?

I have espeak set at 22 percent with the rate boost on. The key is increasing the rate slowly over time. For example increase the rate each day by one or two percent. This will help your ears get used to listening at higher speeds.

... How can anyone understand what's being read or enjoy what they're
reading at such outrageous speeds? I've never changed NVDA from its default
rate with espeak. And how can you even tell there's fluttering if the synth
is yammering on so fast you can barely make out the words?
I just tested it and I can't make out what's being said at all. If I didn't
know the contents of the dialogue, I'd be lost.

   I all ways used the default nvda max english voice, I am
disappointed in the changes made to espeak in nvda I think starting
with nvda 2015 or may be as far back as 2014.  Were the changes made
to espeak by nvda devel or the creator of espeak.  I would like a
choice in nvda setup to be able to pick witch espeak to install.  I
feal the need for speed quite freequently and to have that fluttering
sound in there when the check box for rate boost is checked so I can
get up to a 600 to 800 words per min is disruptive.  I am still trying
to get used to it.
