AceReader greatly impressed us with its large selection of training lessons. There are more than 200 training exercises, which keep you enticed and engaged throughout the entire program. This speed-reading software offers a handful of drill activities that are broken up into five categories: minimizing subvocalization, eliminating re-reading and regression, expanding the eye-fixation zone, reducing eye-fixation time and increasing your re-fixation speed. These five categories help you know exactly why you are completing a drill and how it will improve your reading skills.
Additionally, you can choose specific themes for your reading content. This is another standout feature that makes this application more enjoyable to use and less like a monotonous chore you must complete every day. AceReader offers several content options that include American history, earth and space science, famous people, fun facts and even SAT prep material.
Another standout feature is the speed-reading stopwatch. This is a small icon located on your screen that provides your current words per minute. This is a useful way to watch your speed improve instead of constantly taking tests to view your results.
Yet another outstanding feature is the ability to set your own goals. You can set speed goals for the different courses and drills you complete. To help you set realistic goals, the software has a chart that shows you realistic reading-speed goals for your current reading level.
You can access more than 50 eBooks in the software. These books have been carefully selected and proofread to ensure that they are of the highest quality. Additionally, you can access hundreds of eBooks on AceReader's website, but you must load these books into the software before you can use them.
