I find that the volume of news that I am interested in reading is increasing. At the same time, I am ever more conscious of my limited time. Fortunately, I’ve found a speed-reading app that helps me process news articles much faster.
Once I’ve identified a news article I would like to read using my news reader (I use Google Reader), I copy the text of the article (using a QuickSilver keystroke) to iReadFast, a free speed-reading app for Mac OS X. With it, I can comfortably read 400 words per minute without losing any comprehension. Click here or on the image below to see a small screencast of how I use iReadFast.
If the text is displayed too fast, you can is slow down. I started at 300 words per minute and have now increased it to 400. I expect to speed it up even faster as I become more accustomed to it.
