Read faster

SwiftRead PRO 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.

Comprehend more with text-to-speech

Research shows that your comprehension of text improves when you read and listen to the text being read out loud to you. Turn on text-to-speech in SwiftRead PRO, listen to a human-sounding voice read to you, and supercharge your learning.

What Users Say About SwiftRead PRO

"I tried out the PRO version and fell in love with it. I use this extension every day for college to read through my textbooks and to proofread my papers. Total game changer for me.

Quinn P

"Being able to run though my reading while simultaneously having the words up and the audio over helps me so much with reading comprehension, I could cry. Thank you! I can't tell you how helpful SwiftRead PRO is."

Anthony C

"I'm seriously impressed by SwiftRead. After evaluating its competitors, I decided that SwiftRead is the best speed reading addon out there. It will pay itself multiple times over for my PhD. Buy the PRO version; it's well worth it."

A note from the founder

In college, I had too much to read as an overworked 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 is now the top-rated speed reading browser extension of its kind and used by readers in over 100 countries. Many of those readers have upgraded to the PRO version to boost their reading and learning.

It is my mission to help you read better and learn more. I'd love for you to give SwiftRead PRO a try.

P.S. Here's a picture of me reading before I even knew how to read. Yes, I loved reading that much, and I still love it.
