AceReader Pro is a must for anybody who is serious about improving both their reading speed and their comprehension.
In today’s fast-paced information age, we’re bombarded with e-mails, Web pages, textbooks, documents, and more. It’s hard to keep up, but there’s a easy solution – AceReader.
It can be used to:
Assess your current reading level.
Improve your reading speed and comprehension, both online and offline.
Help you read faster while on the computer, by utilizing special display modes.
Now it’s more important than ever to be a proficient reader. Everyone from high-powered executives to children just learning to read in grade school can benefit from AceReader.
Our goal is to help you read faster, while maintaining or even improving your comprehension. When you accomplish this, reading becomes like watching a movie. It becomes fun to read because you’re able to absorb more material in a shorter amount of time. In short, it leads to more success and a better overall quality of life.
Like anything, it takes practice. AceReader is not designed to teach you how to read, but instead focuses on helping you be more proficient at your reading both on and off the computer.
AceReader helps you break two major bad habits:
Subvocalization (pronouncing the words in your mind while you read)
Re-Reading/Regression (letting your eyes wander back to re-read the text)
AceReader paces you to read at higher speeds. At these higher speeds, it becomes physically impossible to subvocalize. And because AceReader displays text by flashing word sets, you will be forced to read ahead and will not have the opportunity to regress.
But that’s only the beginning. AceReader will also help you:
Reduce Your Eye Fixation Time (time spent when your eyes are focused on a single point).
Expand Your Eye Fixation Zone (ability to read a wider text width when your eyes are focused on a single point).
Increase Your Re-Fixation Speed (ability to reposition your eyes at a rapid rate).
Now includes graphical warm-up drills!
Double your Reading Speed with AceReader.
PROVEN: Thousands of individuals, schools and learning centers use it successfully.

DUAL PURPOSE: The program allows you to load text from files and from the clipboard (i.e. Web pages, e-mails, .pdf files, .doc files…) and lets you train with material you need to read anyway.
AWARD WINNING: AceReader has won over 50 awards and honors, including rated the Winner out of all the Winners by "Technology & Learning."

AceReader uses the following two technologies. (Each can help you learn to take in multiple words at one time.)
RAPID SERIAL VISUAL PRESENTATION — When AceReader is in RSVP mode, text is displayed in the center of the text area. RSVP can help you read faster than normal because your eyes do not have to move. The words come to your eyes instead of your eyes going to the words.
TACHISTOSCOPIC SCROLL PRESENTATION — When AceReader is in TSP mode, text is displayed in a manner that forces your eyes to move just like they do in normal reading. TSP can train you to read in a normal fashion but at higher speeds.
At school, work, or home, use AceReader as:
A READING IMPROVEMENT TOOL — Learn to read faster by practicing at configurable speed settings. Track progress by taking the reading/comprehension tests, broken out by grade levels 1-12+. Once you’ve broken two bad habits (Subvocalization and Re-Reading), you will find yourself reading 2X, 3X, or even faster. The more you practice, the better you will get.
A PRODUCTIVITY TOOL — Read faster at the computer. Use AceReader to read and skim text rapidly from a variety of documents and from your clipboard. The clipboard allows you to import text from other applications, such as your favorite word processor and text from the Internet (i.e. Web pages, e-mail, news groups). Utilize the “Burst” and “Sentence Search” features to read efficiently while online. Adjust (1) speed of text presentation, (2) font color, (3) font size, (4) background color, (5) number of words or lines, (6) delays, and much more.
Targeting specific challenges:
Diagnostic Reading Assessment Tool – In addition to improving your reading skills, use AceReader to help assess your current reading level (speed and comprehension).
Tachistoscope – Use AceReader as a pacing tool. Some teachers have noted that AceReader is a modern-day software version of the mechanical tachistoscope machines from years ago. Those machines, which would flash text onto a screen at configurable speeds, were used to help many students and teachers learn how to read better by pacing their eye movement. AceReader goes beyond their capabilities, though, by providing many additional options and features, and it includes the ability to track student progress.
Warm Up Tool – Use AceReader to warm up your reading skills. It’s the same as picking up several bats and taking a few swings before stepping up to the plate. Then you can switch over to read online or offline, increasing your speed in the process.
Low Vision Aid – Read without eye movement. Change the text font and background color to meet your needs.
Memorization and Flash Card Tool – Use AceReader Pro’s Flash Card Game to memorize learning material (i.e. state capitals, multiplication tables). You can also use the Burst Forward and Burst Repeat features to rapidly read and re-read text for the purpose of memorizing it.
Self-Improvement Programmer – Step up the speed and rapidly display messages to yourself for the purpose of programming your subconscious with positive suggestions.
Foreign Languages Trainer – Use AceReader as a computerized flash card system to read and re-read text for the purpose of learning a foreign language. AceReader support s the international ASCII character set (i.e. English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, etc.).
ESL Trainer – Use AceReader to help learn English as a Second Language by improving your English reading skills.
Dyslexia Aid – Read by viewing one or a few words at a time. Easily adjust the speed to your fit your needs.
Eye Tracker – Train your eyes to move left-to-right and top-to-bottom by using the “Eye Trainer Mode.” This mode forces proper eye movement for normal offline reading.
PhotoReading Aid – Use AceReader to flash whole pages of text at desired speeds to assist with online PhotoReading techniques.
Speed Reading Aid – Use AceReader to assist your eye tracking at configured speeds. This will help break common bad reading habits that slow you down (i.e. subvocalization and regression…).
Proficient Reading = Proficient Learning. Once you unlock your reading potential, you will unlock your ability to learn everything more proficiently.
Better grades in school. Teach your children skills that will pay benefits through high school, college and into the workplace.
Better performance on the job where reading skills are more and more important.
More hours in your life as your reading speed increases.
Better quality of life as your reading, understanding and retention grow year after year.
Real Users Say:
“As a speed reading instructor for Certified Learning Centers, I have evaluated many software programs over the years. However, once I found AceReader Pro, I knew I didn’t need to look any further. The program is easy to follow, allows the user to adjust a wide variety of parameters, and reinforces all the techniques critical to becoming an efficient reader. In short, AceReader Pro is a must for anybody who is serious about improving both their reading speed and their comprehension. We have selected AceReader Pro as the software to use in our courses.”- Miriam Ruff, Certified Learning Centers, Silver Spring, MD
“Dear AceReader Executives: North Park Academy began incorporating AceReader into our curriculum on a weekly basis last year to much success! The students truly enjoy the “competition” to increase their own reading skills while the teachers can see the results, too. Many students have increased their speed and comprehension by 200 – 300%! We will continue to use AceReader because it works for both the younger and older students.”- Jeff Drozda, Indiana State Senator, COO of North Park Academy, Indianapolis, IN
