Image from store ReadFast powered by Spritz
Description from store Use the official Spritz technology to improve your reading speed. Works on any page with text content. Simply double-click on the text you want to read to start Spritzing. You can also select the text and use the context menu to start Spritzing. If no text is selected, the whole page will be Spritzed. Reading speed is configurable via a slider. Pause is triggered by a click anywhere in the popup or by the CTRL key. Rewind 1 sentence by using the LEFT arrow key. Close by clicking outside of the box or with the ESC key. Double click detection can be disabled by using Alt+S or by clicking on the extension icon. You can Spritz content from outside of the browser, by copying content to the clipboard and hit the CTRL+B shortcut in chrome to start reading the copied text. This is useful for content that cannot be open in chrome. Keyboard shortcuts and other settings are configurable via the options menu. You will be amazed by how fast you can read!

  • (2019-02-20) Philipp Christen: Funktioniert nicht mit dem aktuellen Chrome-Browser
  • (2017-09-20) Adam Sommerfeld: Doesn't work - text doesn't load. There are other options that do work - use them.
  • (2016-11-11) Quinn Seaton: Hours of troving through random points of interest, made easier and faster. Enjoy curious reader, enjoy.
  • (2016-08-12) Needs more development and looking into but I love the idea behind it.
  • (2016-01-28) Conor Flynn: Doesn't work...
  • (2016-01-14) Andrew Fatuk: Очень полезная вещь!
  • (2015-01-11) Lucas Bäckvall: Ett måste! Logga in i appen för att höja hastigheten mer än standard-max.
  • (2014-12-14) Eric H: There are definitely some limitations to this app. It is not very user friendly at all, particularly if you want to read an entire article. The double-click method of selecting text is about pointless, because it will only highlight a single paragraph, and it's a pain to highlight an entire page and then right-click to to read with spritz. I use ZippyWeb on my phone, which is a far superior product, and was hoping this would be something similar for chrome. ZippyWeb will automatically analyze the entire page, and then serves up the article without the need for double-clicking or highlighting anything. I wish this plugin was similar in its design.
  • (2014-12-10) Jimothy: Hi - Just bought the reader and nothing happens when I try to use it. Help??
  • (2014-11-27) Sarah Holdsworth: Very useful app, as a dyslexic I am now able to read slightly above the 'standard' reading speed. My reading now feels like it wont be such a limiter. The only thing that I struggle with is how it skips through text formatting. For example writers often use punctuation differently, whether they're technically right or wrong. Often things like : - ' ' are used to visually enhance the format of a paragraph. I find these go through the app a bit too quickly, it's difficult to determine what the writer is trying to do with it. This app is pretty genius in my eyes.
  • (2014-10-23) Mario Ochoa: Me ha gustado mucho esta extension. Relamente se pueden leer a gran velocidad, textos largos.
  • (2014-10-18) Michael Gersten: Does not work with PDF's and that's the only reason I just payed for it. Worthless JUNK
  • (2014-09-03) M AlEssa: would be better if I could change the reading gesture to use right click for example.
  • (2014-07-04) Ali-Reza Anghaie: It needs some work but it's the only one that does Spritz as it should be done. Things that could use improvement: - Needs to be smarter about what to include by default. Should exclude things like gmail by default - making the user opt-in. - Would be nice if it worked on pages generated by Evernote Clearly or similar tools. If it can work with these type of tools then a context menu option to read whole page would be great. - Needs to have a privacy policy that explains ~where~ the text goes and what gets sent over to Spritz or what gets done locally. And how to opt-out of any profiling or such. - Ability to turn off double-click mode since that effects copying-and-pasting from a ton of pages. I could see this being much more popular and less of a toy extension with improvement like the above or along those lines. Good first effort and good luck to the author! Cheers, -Ali
  • (2014-06-13) Влад Воронин: Рекомендую изменить цвет выделения с ярко-маркерно-зеленого на серый или предоставить возможность выбора цвета. Сейчас после чтения "пятна" в глазах остаются!))
  • (2014-06-12) Finally a great application to learn to read faster! Simply excellent!
  • (2014-06-09) Pusselz: Hilft produktiv zu arbeiten!
