This question already has an answer here:
For the past few days I have been exploring various extensions and sites which help you in speed reading the articles/content. I was fascinated in the beginning by their promises but in the end I'm quite disappointed that none of them quite seem to work perfectly for me and it seems I will be going back to my old reading habits. I have tried the extensions such as sprint reader , readline , spree and others like squirt , spritz , etc. There are many iOS,android apps too and recently samsung wearables are coming with default spritz app which shows one word at a time quickly. My question is that can we really increase our reading speed as claimed by many and there are various online courses and books teaching that. If yes , to what extent and how? Has anyone else also tried,experimented or currently using such techniques or apps or extensions. Do you believe they are worth using? Can anyone suggest some technique which they used and it worked for them.
