Rapid Read - a speed reading training and facilitation program!

Rapid Read is a speed reading app using rapid serial visual presentation (similar to the website spreeder) to allow you to quickly display your reading content from the clipboard, any website, or a file (.txt or .html). Can be used as a training program to reduce sub-vocalization and increase comprehension, or simply use it to read your favorite content faster! Speeds of 400-700 wpm are commonly attainable with the first use of the program.

Fully adjustable interface allows the user to select number of words displayed, reading speed, and position within the text. Use the "share" feature of your phone's web browser to easily send content to the app.

    What is the max file size you can copy from the clipboard? The summary says that the file has been loaded but not shown, then when I go to the read scree it doesn't have the entire file. Would be helpful to know

    The reading part is ok, but finding a specific page or part in the text is difficult. Should have a regular view as well to navigate easily when not in speed reading mode
