3x Faster Instantly without Training
You’re probably interested in reading faster – after all, you clicked on this article – but you probably know someone who ‘isn’t a reader’ who will benefit from this even more than you.
The average person reads 150 words per minute (wpm) on a computer. You can easily triple or quadruple your reading speed to 450 or 600 wpm just by using an app like Spreed. To put that into perspective, you can finish most books in the same amount of time as watching the movie. That’s powerful stuff.
You read slower on a computer
The biggest obstacle to reading faster is eye moment. When you use Spreed, it centers all of the text into a single window so that all you have to do is comprehend.
If you’re an average reader, you read about 200 words per minute (wpm). On a computer, you read 150 wpm. That’s a 25% loss in speed (an additional 15 minutes every hour) just by reading on a computer – and it only gets worse! The faster you read on paper, the greater the inefficiency.
