iReadFast

Another entry in the Freeware/Shareware series.

iReadFast is intended to be for speed reading, but I am somewhat skeptical of it claims. I do think it might be a great tool for kids with tracking problems and as a tool for helping kids develop reading fluency. It has a ton of different settings and variables that I have only begun to explore. I am particularly intrigued by the idea of putting in Dolch or other frequently used phrases or material for kids to practice reading in a kind of fun yet challenging way. Start really slow and speed up, see how many you can get right!
