Speed reading is valuable especially if you just want to get the essence or the most important idea of what you are reading. We do not really need to spend long time just to read the entire story if we know how to read with speed. And I just found Spreeder which is a nice website where you can practice speed reading for free.
Spreeder is a web-based application that could train you to read with speed. All you need to do is to paste the paragraph that you want to read onto the panel then click the play button and presto! It will automatically chunk the words for you. You can adjust the setting of the panel to your desired speed so that you can read at your own pace initially. Then if you are used to it, you can change the setting again for faster speed reading. Try it and you will be amazed how it can help you read with speed.
