Read Faster

SwiftRead PRO (formerly known as Spreed) uses a technique called rapid serial visual presentation, or RSVP, to help you read text faster. By presenting text this way, you reduce sub-vocalization ("sounding the words" out), unconcious re-reading, and eliminate eye movements, which are the main things holding back your reading speed.

Maximize focus and comprehension with premium typography and color schemes

SwiftRead PRO features eight premium fonts, including a font to help people with dyslexia, and several fonts used by companies like Apple, Amazon, and Google, because they were designed for optimal readibility. SwiftRead PRO even includes a font specifically designed to help those with dyslexia read more effectively.

SwiftRead PRO also features 12 color schemes designed from principles of how humans perceive color to help you maximize readability and comprehension with minimal eye strain. You can also customize the text, background, and highlight colors.

A note from the founder

In 2013, I had too much to read as an overworked college student. So I built SwiftRead to help me instantly double my reading speed and breeze through the reading I had to do on my computer: online textbooks, news articles, PDFs and any other text that I could copy-paste into SwiftRead.

SwiftRead (formerly known as Spreed) is now the top-rated speed reading browser extension of its kind and used by readers in over 150 countries. Many of those readers have upgraded to the PRO version to read faster and learn more. I'd love for you to give it a try.
