Should I use the two-person method to proofread text?

Two-Person Approach

The two-person approach to proofreading requires one person to read aloud the newly-composed text, while a second person follows along on the original manuscript. This is NOT a good method because the person reading along tends to mentally relax and errors often get missed. Also, if proofreader's marks have been used on the original, they are difficult to convey verbally.
