Spreeder: Evelyn Wood 2.0?
Have you seen Spreeder, the speedreading app available at Spreeder.com? By inputting text into spreeder, you activate an app that presents the text very rapidly in chunks that force you to focus and removes some of the things that slow readers down like vocalizing in your head or backtracking. Spreeder appears to increase reading speeds by a healthy chunk.
It's weird yet oddly intriguing.
Not sure I would want to read a book like this, though I did find it useful for catching typos, oddly enough.
Go ahead, copy paste some text in the window and see what you think.
Note: This is NOT an Evelyn Wood product.
Thanks for reading, and don't forget to write.
