Overview

Speed read webpages while learning how to speed read anything.

From the developer of the top speed reading Chrome extension, Spreed, comes a speed reading tool that teaches you how to speed read, while you read in your browser. ShiftReader helps you speed read any text you can open in your browser--news articles, emails, online textbooks, PDFs, even ePUB e-books--while training your eyes and brain to speed read text in any other medium, like books or newspapers. It implements speed reading techniques taught by the top speed reading courses, and popularized by lifelong learners like Tim Ferriss. You'll learn methods that can be applied when reading anything: no more showing you one word at a time, or coloring the letters differently, techniques that only work if you use the right tool on your computer or phone. Download ShiftReader to accelerate your reading and learning, save time, and develop a lifelong skill of speed reading that you can take anywhere. Learn more at our site https://shiftreader.com, or our blog at https://blog.shiftreader.com.

Doesn't work. Tried using ALT + S on a PDF and got an error message. I was asked to highlight the text and right click in order to use Shiftreader. The text was several pages but I wanted to test it with just a paragraph. After highlighting and right clicking the page just froze in place(but not frozen since I could still right click and type in the browser) forcing me to restart the page and try again. I wasted probably ten minutes trying to make this work when I could have been reading.

It says that you have to create an account so it can save settings and statistics. That is BS, because those can be saved in chrome sync storage, and maybe I don't care about them. It should say that it wants you register so it can track you, and potentially leak your data a few years from now.

Requires you to register, under the guise of needing a login to save your settings. Blatant lies aside, you shouldn't need to send data to anyone.
