A speed reader that lets you come up for air.

Sometimes, you want to zoom through an article at 800 words per minute. But you might miss something. You might lose sense of where you are - in a bulleted list? A new paragraph? SplashReader lets you easily toggle back and forth between speed-reading and normal reading with a flick of a space bar. It pauses every paragraph, giving a sense of context. Highlight a word to re-read a section or start again somewhere new. Don't sacrifice comprehension for speed when you don't have to. SplashReader is an RSVP (Rapid Serial Visual Presentation), similar to other excellent speed-readers like Reedy, Spreed, Spritz, Squirt.io, and Glance. The primary differentiator is the ease with which you can move back and forth between one-word-at-a-time speed reading, and standard reading. SplashReader is open-source, with the code available at http://github.com/rattrayalex/splashreader

Great idea that short breaks for showing text, letting know where you are. Additionally it's very versatile, as you can pause fast reading and adjust its speed on the way, and let you control where you are if you stop. But doing necessarily the pause sometimes it breaks concentration on reading when it's too often, depending on the text. That feature may be personalised by users. Anyway, excellent idea!
