Default Do you pronounce words in your head as you read?

Do you simply absorb the ideas represented by the words as you read or do you also pronounce them in your head?

I do both depending of what I am reading. Like Novels I would not really care about memorizing the words so I would just absorb the ideas behind the words. but with textbooks because I am trying to learn what's inside I would repeat the words as they come out. I think because a textbook feels so mechanic compare to a novel.

Right now I am saying the words in my brain as I type.

Wish I could do the former but I pronounce them in my head. Makes me an auditory learner right?

I'm trying to separate the two completely. It's tricky.

Can you listen to music and read and comprehend at the same time?

Is it possible to type without pronouncing the words in your head? I can't do it.

Yes. But the amount of knowledge and information one can store or retain would drastically drop.

No I tend to zone out and just imagine what is happening. Sometimes I manage to snap out of it and realize I am reading.

Textbooks I tend to focus on the words though.
