Use Spreed, the highest rated and most popular speed reading extension of its kind, to speed through text in your browser! Spreed works on news articles, blog posts, emails, books in Amazon Kindle Cloud Reader, PDFs, and ePUBs.
Spreed works by utilizing a visual technique called Rapid Serial Visual Presentation, or RSVP, used by the fastest speed readers in the world. Spreed helps you eliminate your inner voice that sounds each word out–known as "subvocalization"–and too much focus on the words themselves, so that you can read more visually, which means faster reading while maintaining comprehension. The average person reads at 200 words per minute; using Spreed, you can easily train yourself to read at double the speed, 400 words per minute, or faster. Think of how much time you'd save every day!
"This is the first review I've ever written for a browser extension. I bloody love this. Saves me so much time. My baseline reading speed used to be around 230 WPM. Using this for only a week I now read at 500 WPM! Ace work."

"I am partially dyslexic and pursuing my doctorate of pharmacy. With Spreed I can actually finish reading the online textbook material we're assigned, which I normally would have skipped. Spreed has helped me pull up my test scores, and I am eternally grateful."

"Truly revolutionary. I've always been a slow reader due to subvocalization; it's not even an issue with Spreed and I can read over three times as fast as I did conventionally. Learn all the things!!!"
– Joe K

NOTE: Spreed uses analytics code, such as from Google Analytics, so that I can measure how many people are using Spreed. This is to help me make Spreed the most helpful it can be! The analytics code cannot see anything you do outside the Spreed window, and it only records visits to Spreed and button clicks, nothing else.
