Book Speed Reader
Custom Solutions of Maryland has released , which helps users practice speed reading using plain text eBook files. Reading speed can be adjusted from approximately 50 words per minute to 1500 words per minute. The display shows twenty lines of text; the text of one-half of one line has normal black text and the rest of the text is dimmed. The user can select automatic or manual scrolling. The reader can start at the beginning or at any line. The display indicates the current line number and the total number of lines in the text. The user can pause and continue reading at any time. eBook texts can be downloaded from the Internet and the application assists in parsing the text for reading (removing unnecessary tabs, carriage returns, line feeds, spaces, etc.).
