Adjust the wait between colours.
Can safely be left in "Default" unless you have specific, study requirements.

This screen is used to adjust the default intervals used in the Spaced Repetition System SRS algorithm. The above parameters are used as a guideline for the study algorithm and not as a definite rule as other priorities can alter the study sequence.

Default settings (as shown above).
