Spritz is an application which seeks out to redefine the way you read books, documents, webpages and those annoyingly boring and long courses. It’s not your overly-promoted “New Way to Improve Reading Speed” either – it actually works. How does it work? By taking each word in a text and displaying it one after the other in a focused location at a certain speed (which you can alter). And why does it work? Read on to find out.
How Can Spritz Improve My Reading Speed?
At first, I was a bit skeptical, especially seeing all the hype around it. The Spritz website was recommended by a friend and I went there expecting some ‘miracle speed reading’ solution. Instead I got to learn about a great idea and a huge game-changer in the ‘reading industry’ (yep, apparently there’s something called a ‘reading industry’ – and why not? There are people making money out of teaching others to read faster). This application seeks to be implemented on already popular devices like readers, smartphones, tablets and your ordinary desktop or laptop.
It would need to start recognizing text in documents and relaying it accordingly. For example, something like a digital newspaper would pose a challenge – would Spritz recognize different columns? In a PDF document which was created using a special font, would it recognize the words accordingly and display them as they are? How about a Wiki page, where there’s all sorts of information displayed at different locations? Well – this is where answers are yet to be given, but interested parties (your truly included) are being kept in the loop.
So yeah – there’s a lot Spritz can offer, but there’s still much work to do before it becomes commercially (or freely) available. For now, you can test it on their official website and decide for yourselves whether or not it’s worth your interest. I, personally, enjoy it. I have my own reservations when it comes to reading novels using Spritz, but for scientific papers, technical books and guides, it could be great. We’re just going to have to wait and see where this whole thing is going. But I do have my fingers crossed that the Spritz team achieves its goal soon!
