This software provides a battery of exercises that will coach you in speed reading.

Each lesson sequence begins with eye calisthenics. These strengthen the eye muscles by asking them to follow dots, words or numbers that flash or march across the screen, and only later does one realize that the eyes are being trained to move faster and take in more at each pause, or fixation.

Then, moving at his or her own pace, the user goes on to forced and paced reading drills. In forced reading the words may be erased or covered as they are read, at a rate set by the user. This keeps the reader from looking back, or regressing, and forces a gradual increase in speed. In paced reading, the text is displayed in a two-column format, but the computer keeps track of how long it should take to finish a passage at a given rate. If the bell sounds before you do, you need more speed work.
