Editors' review

This software aims to teach you speed-reading. The installation is fast, and AceReader Pro launches on your desktop in seconds. The small main window presents various drills and training sessions to test your skills. In one of the tests you read a text passage, then answer questions based on the contents. Another game displays some text within which you have to find specified words. A third drill flashes a word on the screen, then asks you to choose it from among four words. A flash-card game shows sentences about American state capitals, then asks you again to choose the correct one from four shown. The program's expert mode provides fine control over the test settings and lets you use your own reading-comprehension files, including PDFs and Microsoft Word documents. The only inconvenient thing about the program is you have to use the mouse to select the right answer, which can be slow or imprecise. In general, though, AceReader ought to help most people who want to read more quickly.

    "Totally life changer, does what you want"

    June 15, 2010   |   By aryn66

    Version: AceReader Pro 7.0

    Pros

    Level of customizability - Change the display mode as you like and make reading as comfortable as you like. Whenever I read via ace Reader, it feels I am reading a physical newspaper. It is this feel that makes my usage so comfortable.

    Cons

    None so far, I used it for 2 years now and still using it. Its like a tread mill for my mind to keep it fit and strong

    Summary

    This review is coming from a user of this software for 2 years. Whenever I have turned to help from it; it has never let me down. I had been a very slow reader since childhood and always used to wonder what I can do to rectify this. It was really a pain to me. Trust me! I tried everything ? from download.com and all several places to look for software that will change my weakness. Even downloaded several speed reading softwares. Unfortunately I would never get the help nor the improvement I needed from those ones. But when I tried Ace Reader my search for a life helping software ended and my life changed. Initially I thought this is just like the some other software in the market with no special appeal to it. But I was wrong. Not only Ace Reader gave an endless ways to practicing and enhancing my reading speed, but also it was designed it such a way I would never get tired of it. My reading speed that used to be at meager 80-180 words per minute since childhood. It changed and picked up to 450 words per minute now, something that I still can?t believe but yes it happened to me. Every time if I get comfortable reading via Ace Reader at a higher speed for a while, I increase the speed even higher. I was dedicated towards making my mind smarter and sexier and always told myself whatever happens I will use Ace Reader at least once a day for 3 minutes. I would read a big piece of news text everyday via Ace reader. Now I am a very fast reader and I Can?t believes it.
    Further Ace Reader?s customer service is very satisfying and when I contacted them after 2 years to say that my PC is not working anymore but I need the software, they gave a free replacement even when I was out of the replacement time period. Totally awesome customer service and they know how to keep the customers happy. If you get Ace Reader, you will change your life but yeah, be dedicated to your purpose and you start seeing amazing results. Thank You Ace Reader for changing my life and my mind.

    Pros

    As the Training Coordinator for Certified Learning Centers, I have evaluated many software programs. Then I found AceReader Pro. The program is easy to follow, and reinforces all the techniques critical to becoming an efficient reader.

    I have not found any features that I felt were confusing or unneceessary. I would recommend this for students of all ages!

    Summary

    The bottom line is that the AceReader Pro, with its wealth of Reading Tests, fun Games, challenging Drills, and fully adjustable parameters, enables the user to learn and retain more efficient reading habits, on all kinds of material. The AceReader Pro is Certified Learning Centers' product of choice, and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to improve their reading skills.
