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

Spry reviews

Love the concept but I had trouble importing. The developer was very helpful and even created a video for me so I’m now able to use it. The max speed on the free version is 250 wpm so you may have to go with the paid version to get the most out of the program.

Way too expensive

Squirt reviews

What I like about the bookmarklet is that it works well with readability extensions or bookmarklets, and that it gives you full control over the process. The one issue that you may run into is that it does not remember custom wpm settings but always reverts back to 400 wpm whenever you invoke its functionality. That's somewhat of a problem for readers who prefer a slower words per minute reading speed as words start to be displayed the second the interface is loaded. You may have to slow down the speed and go back to the beginning then to start over.

- Martin Brinkmann

The thing about speed reading is that to use it in a real way, you read in chunks. So instead of word by word you read like 3 words at a time. Check out spreeder, which has been doing this for quite a while (and is where I learned to speed read). The other problem is that there is no way to go back and reference material you have already read or pictures that are in the text. This is present with all speed reading apps and why you should just learn to speed read without a fancy app.

Came here to say the same thing. Although it is fun to mess with speed reading on a site without context, I don't know how useful it would be on a site that requires the user to actually consume text.
