Spree is a Speed Reader tool that utilizes RSVP
technology to help you read faster! From wikipedia:
"A presentation method called Rapid Serial Visual Presentation
(RSVP) was developed to diminish the resource cost of readers'
eye movements. RSVP is a method of displaying information
(generally text or images) in which the text is displayed word-
by-word in a fixed focal position. This may be used to increase
reading rate or provide access to long text on small displays."
Spree is great for:
Testing how fast you are able to read by adjusting WPM on the
fly. Read up to 1000 WPM!
Helps focus because you are forced to pay attention or risk not
Helps you read faster because you do not need to move your eyes
