Editors' Review

by   / November 08, 2008

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 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.
