Hey guys,

I haven't seen this mentioned in the forum before, so I hope it's
not a dupe post, but I want to share a tool I've been using for

If you've ever heard of speed reading, well, this is proof that it

And it's a cool way to test how fast you can read and how much you
can comprehend when speed reading...

You simply go to Free online speed reading
software |
, click the top link and paste in
whatever you want to read.

It's awesome for consuming blog posts, reports, doing market
research and just consuming information a lot faster than usual.

A major chunk of my time is spent reading and researching, and this
tool has been a massive time saver for me.

You'll also notice yourself getting faster the more you use it.

Try it out, it's very cool. *I have zero affiliation with the site.*

Hope it helps someone out.

    Umm - yes, I can. No website necessary. :p Took a speed-reading course way back in high-school to get out of another course I had no interest in.

    And it has been very very useful over the years.

    Interesting website, and it could well be very helpful to some. Even just getting reading speed up to 150% would save 1 minute out of every 3.

    Thanks man, I'm definitely gonna look into this!

    This job requires more reading and researching than anything else. And of course, time is money. :-)

      I also learned how to speed read - on my own - about a year back. I can read between 1500 to 2500 words per minute, depending how focused I am. I can read over 1000 words per minute effortlessly, though.

      It has been very beneficial in some ways. My comprehension actually goes up the faster I speed read. Interesting how that works. I usually read 4-5 new books a week because I can read so fast.

      Surprisingly I can speed read even faster on my kindle than a regular book. Weird.

      With that said, I don't think it's too much of an advantage in IM. Sometimes knowing too much information can put you at a disadvantage because you simply have too many options. But it's great if you're a writer, and write books, ebooks, etc. because you have a lot to draw from for examples and anecdotal stuff.

    This is awesome. I can't quite do 1000wpm (been inserting random WF posts into it) so I have to keep up the practice.

    I'll insert an ebook I've been meaning to read

    Is that different to reading while on speed?

    I'd imagine that'd help you read fast too

    I am signed up for Speed Reading class starting in a month at my local Arizona State University. I paid $300 for it, and it's supposed to improve my reading speed and comprehension by 3 times.

    It's starting in a month, and I thought if I mastered it, I could package it to sell as informational product too, which was another reason I wanted to try it.

    It's a 3hr course over 4 weeks, I can't wait to start. Will let you know how that goes, everyone.

    This one's pretty interesting although I don't need a software to do that often. Simply skimming through is whole time saving for me. But thanks for sharing, this would add up to a nice skill when practiced.

    I have found photo reading as opposed to speed reading to be a more effective technique. Speed reading is tiring on the eyes and can become mentally taxing quite quickly, photo reading is not as tiring much faster and gives better comprehension.
