Overview

Read two or three times faster, with SwiftRead. Absorb knowledge and learn more.

Use SwiftRead, the highest rated and most popular speed reading extension of its kind, to speed read through text in your browser! SwiftRead works on news articles, blog posts, and emails. You can use SwiftRead to speed read whatever text you can copy-paste into SwiftRead. Or, select your text in the browser, right-click, and click "SwiftRead selected text". The PRO version of SwiftRead comes with native support for speed reading PDFs, ePUBs, even Kindle books on Kindle Cloud Reader, as well as many other features to help you read faster and learn more. SwiftRead works by utilizing a visual technique called Rapid Serial Visual Presentation, or RSVP, used by the fastest speed readers in the world. SwiftRead 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 SwiftRead, 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! I'm proud to be an independent developer, which means my only goal is to serve you, the user of the things that I build. As a result, I'm always making SwiftRead better! Please email me at help@swiftread.com with any bugs or features you would find helpful. Your support makes my work possible, and I'm tremendously grateful. Sign-up to the SwiftRead mailing list for updates and other goodies! https://swiftread.com. NOTE: SwiftRead uses analytics code, such as from Google Analytics, so that I can measure how many people are using the extension. This is to help me make SwiftRead the most helpful it can be! The analytics code cannot see anything you do outside the SwiftRead window, and it only records visits to SwiftRead and button clicks, nothing else. Copyright SwiftRead.

Verify that "Open SwiftRead, auto extract content" is set to "Alt+V" (or your desired shortcut). -------------

Literally 95% of the options are locked away. That includes basic settings like being able to use certain shortcuts to increase/decrease the WPM, pausing, and micro-pausing that allow you to be able to quickly pause when a long word appears or new paragraph starts. If you don't believe me, go to the settings and see how options, very basic options, have a "Pro" box that you have to pay $15 monthly to use and prepare to be amazed.

I actually love SwiftRead, but I don't use it for speed reading, and wish it had an option to only advance on key press or something similar. You see, I am visually impaired, and the line by line reading experience this provides has helped me a lot. Unfortunately, because I am visually impaired I have a hard time specifying a WPM because some words are easier to see than others, no matter how I change the font style or size. So some words take longer for me to parse and this throws off the WP... Show more
