Spreeder is a free service provided by eReflect, the makers of 7 Speed Reading. This online program can improve your reading skills and comprehension. Speed reading is a technique used to improve one’s ability to read quickly. Methods include chunking and eliminating subvocalization. There are many training programs, books, videos, software, and seminars on this subject. With enough practice, anyone can learn to double, triple, or even quadruple the speed at which you currently read passages.

 

Unlike many programs, you can choose to practice with any text you want. Maybe you’d like to use your favorite short story or a historic quote or passage of scripture. When you get to the website, simply paste any text you’d like in the text window and then, below the window, simply hit the play button and read. You’ll view one word or a “chunk” of words at a time. You can also customize the speed at which you would like to begin practicing, the background and font color, the font size, and even the size of the window that will appear on your screen.
