ShiftReader – Speed Read the Web

Category: Speed Reading Tools

Industries: Kids, Students, Pupils, People working with a large volume of information

Learn how to read anything quickly by reading websites quickly.
From the creator of the most popular speed reading Chrome extension, Spreed, comes a speed reading tool that teaches you how to speed read while you read in your browser.

ShiftReader helps you speed read any content you can open in your browser, including news stories, emails, online textbooks, PDFs, and even ePUB e-books, while conditioning your eyes and brain to read text quickly in any other medium, such as books or newspapers.

It uses the quick-reading strategies taught in the best speed reading programs and made popular by lifelong learners like Tim Ferriss. You’ll discover ways that work regardless of the text you’re reading. For example, you won’t need to employ techniques like showing you words one at a time or coloring the letters in a different way if you have the correct software on your computer or phone.

ShiftReader – Speed Read the Web reviews

It says that you have to create an account so it can save settings and statistics. That is BS, because those can be saved in chrome sync storage, and maybe I don't care about them. It should say that it wants you register so it can track you, and potentially leak your data a few years from now.

Requires you to register, under the guise of needing a login to save your settings. Blatant lies aside, you shouldn't need to send data to anyone.

This extension behaves like my favorite speed reading solution "eyercise," and because it allows chunking per fixation point actually improves one's reading ability in general over that lousy rsvp method which will eventually lead to depth-perception issues (a _common_ outcome of staring at screens for hours). Morbid fact: The average person will spend 44 years of their life staring at screens. My personal favorite setup is green highlight color, dark red highlight background, and dark blue page text. Once the highlight background begins to fade, the previously marked text appears black until retinal rods and cones re-adapt. To the dev: Reason for 4 stars: I think the suggested donation is way too high. Feature request: 1. glowing text using webkit opacity transition effect. 2. keep highlight line at the top level (autoscroll for persistent top line). Thank you so much.
