Even though speed reading can lower your comprehension, it can be extremely helpful for getting what you need from certain documents, Thorin Klosowski writes. Chrome offers a mobile extension called Spreed that can help you get through a text in record time.

Once you’ve downloaded Spreed, select your text, right-click on it and select “Spreed selected text.” A popup of the app will appear ready to go. When you hit “Play,” Spreed will go through each individual word at a pace of your choice. You can also change the number of words that show up at a time, as well as font size, so that you’re getting exactly what you need to read as quickly as you can.
