Simply highlight some text (e.g. from Notes, your favorite news, a script or whatever…), open share sheet and select Read with Speed™. When starting the shortcut directly from within the Shortcuts app or the Today View, your clipboard content will be automatically loaded into Read with Speed™.

Next the shortcut opens a new window, where you can start speed reading. Simply tap the READ button to start. Hit it again to PAUSE reading. A slider is used to give you the possibility to change the reading position.

The default Words Per Minute (WPM) is 200, but you can adjust it as you like with a slider. The shortcut will remember these settings. That said, even if you quit the Shortcuts App your WPM settings will remain if you use Read with Speed™ again.

By default words with less than four characters will merge and display together to improve the reading speed.

The whole design is responsive and will display great starting with iPhone 5/SE.

The default font size is 32px, but you can change this to your needs with a dedicated slider. This setting will be saved as well, so you don’t need to change it each time you use the shortcut.

There’s even a Dark Mode toggle, if you like it white on black!
