Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Smiley Reader For Speed Reading reviews

Very nice extension, though usually lagging while restart a new reading. Why don't you add a float, movable control board to start/pause/reset a reading attempt (would be a big plus if user can set hot keys for those actions too)?

- One Plus

Great work, but why can't I choose number of words to be highlighted? It would be better to have it, I think.

- AlBara Khalifa

Best speed reading extension I've seen. I would love to be able to turn off the background highlighting, though. Also, when autoscroll is enabled, it would be nice to have it keep the current line at the middle of the screen.

Reedy reviews

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.

- Scot D. Evans

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.

- Marc van Lohuizen

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.

Pros & cons


Excellent teaching tool
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
The ability of the Reedy app to display images and tables is a definite plus and gives it an edge of other services
Good user interaction
A goodly number of users have commented on the fact that the developers are very quick to react to suggestions and complaints
This must be seen as a very large plus too.

Speed reading vs reading fast
Despite the claims of the developers, the Reedy app does not teach you accelerated literacy skills
It may, however, help some readers to increase pace based on RSVP
On the downside, it does not allow you to skim material before processing, an essential part of quick reading, especially for study purposes
No scientific base
Literacy skills and retention have been the focus of many empirical studies
Processing text one word at a time is not conducive to retaining the central theme of entire sentences, paragraphs and even sections
IOS users
I’m afraid but Reedy is not available for iPhone and Co
I don’t think it ever will, as some tools will be simply created for one system in mind.
