Read two or three times faster, with SwiftRead. Absorb knowledge and learn more.

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". The PRO version of SwiftRead comes with native support for speed reading PDFs, ePUBs, even Kindle books on Kindle Cloud Reader, as well as many other features to help you read faster and learn more.

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."
- James H

"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!!!"
- Joe K

NOTE: SwiftRead uses analytics code, such as from Google Analytics, so that I can measure how many people are using the extension. This is to help me make SwiftRead the most helpful it can be! The analytics code cannot see anything you do outside the SwiftRead window, and it only records visits to SwiftRead and button clicks, nothing else.

Really great app for fast reading. The feature I like most of all is ePUB Reader. Many thanks to author.

I cannot get the sound to work on my computer. I have tried going through all the settings and nothing worked. This extention would be really helpful if it worked.

It would be nice if the cursor was hidden while reading. Besides that, it's a great app.

I updated Chrome and realized suddenly there's a new extension. "SwiftRead". I spent a couple minutes trying to figure it out but went to sleep as I was tired at bedtime. The next day I noticed a charge for $2.99 in my bank account? It could be a good extension, I'm not sure, I'll try it again today, but had no idea there was a charge - Hmmm
