Have you ever wanted how to listen faster? Speechify can help you listen at speeds you never thought were possible before with it’s Automatic Speed Ramping Feature.

Have you wondered how you can listen faster and how it can save you time?

When you use Speechify, you can train yourself to listen faster through the Automatic Speed Ramping Feature. This feature, when turned on from the speed controller, will allow you to increase your listening speed by a few words per minute (WPM) every 500 to 1000 words.

Speechify Listening Speed Adjustment

This means that you can train yourself to listen faster effortlessly as you would not notice the subtle difference in speed every couple of minutes. 

The average reader reads at about 200 WPM

Most Speechify users start by listening at around 200 WPM and within 3 to 4 months they are able to listen anywhere from 400 to 600 WPM. ?

? This means that a book that a person reads or listens at 200 WPM will take 7 and a half hours to finish. 

? But when listening at 400 WPM they only take around 3 hours and 45 minutes to finish and faster listeners at 600 WPM can finish reading in only about 2 and a half hours.


? Some of our users listen at the maximum speed of 900WPM which allows you to finish a book in under 2 hours.

? Use Speechify’s text-to-speech software to turn anything into an audiobook and be 3 times more productive today.
