t's the end of the day and you still have reading you have to catch up on. If you spend time reading for your work, career, business or school then you know this feeling well. And it certainly isn't reading for pleasure. It's called "Reading for Purpose". This isn't the kick off your shoes, relax and curl up with a good novel kind of reading. It's the required reading you have to get through because you need the information it contains. And that's exactly what RapidReader is designed for. A single click is all it takes for RapidReader's patented software to easily accelerate your on-screen reading speed for PDF files, web pages, MS Word docs. It automatically extracts the content from the kinds of files you use the most and gives you a new kind of tool enabling you to instantly read much faster with an experience that's as easy and comfortable as watching a movie.

In studies conducted at major universities* researchers discovered that we're capable of reading and comprehending 1600 words per minute with no prior training or practice. How? By changing the display of text and presenting it like a movie or video. In the lab, the result was that you could comfortably sit back, comprehend and absorb the material simply by watching it. Many times faster than average reading speed.

Now, after more than 10 years of research and development you can have that accelerated reading power as software on your own computer.

How RapidReader Works

It's simple to use...

When you open a document or web page in RapidReader, the software analyzes the content of the file, extracts the text and then configures it for RapidReader's optimized high speed reading.

You'll get page numbers, text search, Notes, Highliter, Bookmarks and a progress bar to show you how much of the document you've read.

RapidReader first presents the text in "ParagraphView". This is similar to what you might see in a word processor page.

The difference is that you can instantly multiply your reading speed. Simply double click on the word where you want to begin. This will launch the TurboView. You choose your own reading speed from 100 wpm to 950.

Please note: the ParagraphView is always availble when you stop accelerated reading.

RapidReader streams the words for you in sequence like a movie. The patented Human Cadence™ software engine displays the text in the natural rhythms of human speech. This unique capability dramatically enhances comprehension and makes RapidReader easy and comfortable even at very high reading speeds.

Display text in the rhythms of natural speech

All you have to do is sit back and watch as the software does the work for you.

What About?

Comprehension Comprehension

A joint study of RapidReader conducted by SoftOlogy IdeaWorks and University of Southern California using standardized reading tests, showed significant improvement in speed using RapidReader over standard reading methods with comprehension scores comparable to the "before" state.

This was while reading at more than three times the average speed on a computer with no training or preparation.

Patented Human Cadence™ The Unique RapidReader Difference: The Rhythms of Human Language

During more than 10 years of research into reading and comprehension, SoftOlogy invented and patented a breakthrough concept called "Human Cadence"™ . RapidReader's unique technology analyses the elements of the content in the file then displays the words in the natural rhythms of human speech.

This critical advance makes reading comprehension easy and comfortable even at very high speeds, because the rhythm of language is highly significant to our understanding of information.

Retention Retention is closely linked to attention.

We've all had the experience of forgetting what we just read. Actually our brains are much faster at processing information than we are able to move our eyes to read it.

RapidReader's compelling high speed display dramatically improves your reading focus by accelerating the reading process. It holds your attention while making it easier for you to digest more information in less time.


Only RapidReader has the patented "Human Cadence™ " technology for displaying text in the natural rhythms of human speech.

It's specifically designed to save you time when you're "Reading for Purpose"

RapidReader's not designed for everything. Like a race car it has a specific purpose: in this case It's to empower you to get through a lot of text at blazing speed with a high level of comprehension. Average reading speed on a computer is only about 100 words per minute. With RapidReader you will be reading and comprehending several times faster than average the first time you use it. And it only gets better from there. RapidReader was created from real neuroscience and founded on solid evidence both in the lab and from thousands of people who use it everyday to gather the information they need.
No courses, No Practice. No Kidding.
