Use SwiftRead, the highest rated and most popular speed reading extension of its kind, to speed read through text in your browser! SwiftRead works on news articles, blog posts, and emails. You can use SwiftRead to speed read whatever text you can copy-paste into SwiftRead. Or, select your text in the browser, right-click, and click "SwiftRead selected text".

Purchasing the PRO version of SwiftRead gives you text-to-speech so that you can speed read while listening to the text being read to you. The PRO version also has native support for speed reading PDFs and ePUBs, as well as many other features to help you read and learn even more, faster.

SwiftRead works by utilizing a visual technique called Rapid Serial Visual Presentation, or RSVP, used by the fastest speed readers in the world. SwiftRead helps you eliminate your inner voice that sounds each word out--known as "subvocalization"--and too much focus on the words themselves, so that you can read more visually, which means faster reading while maintaining comprehension. The average person reads at 200 words per minute; using SwiftRead, you can easily train yourself to read at double the speed, 400 words per minute, or faster. Think of how much time you'd save every day!

"This is the first review I've ever written for a browser extension. I bloody love this. Saves me so much time. My baseline reading speed used to be around 230 WPM. Using this for only a week I now read at 500 WPM! Ace work."

"I am partially dyslexic and pursuing my doctorate of pharmacy. With SwiftRead I can actually finish reading the online textbook material we're assigned, which I normally would have skipped. SwiftRead has helped me pull up my test scores, and I am eternally grateful."

  • Wesley W

"Truly revolutionary. I've always been a slow reader due to subvocalization; it's not even an issue with SwiftRead and I can read over three times as fast as I did conventionally. Learn all the things!!!"

It's fantastic to be able to read quickly and stay focused on the text only. Whether in English or French, it works perfectly. This is really an extension that I have been waiting for a long time. | C'est fantastique de pouvoir lire rapidement et rester focus sur le texte seulement. Que ce soit en anglais ou en français, ça fonctionne à merveille. C'est vraiment une extension que j'attendais depuis longtemps.

This site is absolutely incredible!!! If you want to get rid of that hardest of speed read obstacles--subvocalization you must use SwiftRead. You can use it for free, but I can recommend buying the PRO version. The PRO version offers around 12-15 color schemes to experiment with. Different letter size, different letter colors, all kinds of different backgrounds; you can experiment to see what works best for you. There are around 20 or more other options with the PRO version that of course can be experimented with. The price of the PRO version is the deal of the century! Troy could charge a LOT more and this program would still still be more than worth it. Troy went out of his way to help me when I needed it and I am grateful to see a good guy make it. I am very excited about how quickly I am seeing results. I HIGHLY recommend the PRO version of this site!!! The bottom line is it works and produces results and isn't that what we want in a site on a speed reading site?
