"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."Sir Richard Branson
It is difficult to understand why the average reader will want to process text one word at a time. It is just too easy to get completely lost in the nuances of the text, especially with long sentences and paragraphs. I tried it, but the app’s welcome in my digital world was very short-lived.-Gerhard H.

|Excellent teaching tool||Speed reading vs reading fast|
|On the upside, the Reedy app can be a very valuable tool in teaching beginners to process content fast and to open up new worlds to those suffering from learning disabilities||Despite the claims of the developers, the Reedy app does not teach you accelerated literacy skills|
|Versatility||It may, however, help some readers to increase pace based on RSVP|
|The ability of the Reedy app to display images and tables is a definite plus and gives it an edge of other services||On the downside, it does not allow you to skim material before processing, an essential part of quick reading, especially for study purposes|
|Good user interaction||No scientific base|
|A goodly number of users have commented on the fact that the developers are very quick to react to suggestions and complaints||Literacy skills and retention have been the focus of many empirical studies|
|This must be seen as a very large plus too.||Processing text one word at a time is not conducive to retaining the central theme of entire sentences, paragraphs and even sections|
I love this app. It works better as a reader than all of the others I have tried. The Text-to-Speech functionality is top notch, and it actually remembers your place if you close it. I highly recommend this app.

First of all, the app is a great text to speech reader. But it's much more than that. It makes reading text on a smart phone screen fast & enjoyable. In my experience, faster than reading text even from a physical book or newspaper! Several apps promise to teach you how to speed read. But there is a learning curve. This app does not do that, nor try to do that. Instead, its interface encourages (& produces) very fast & efficient reading of any text, esp on smart phones.

I'm pleasantly surprised that the application is free of charge, because I nearly paid a few pounds for a different EPUB reader, and now I'm glad that I didn't do it. Save your money and use Reedy.
