    I took a speed reading course a few years back and increased well in speed, but I agree that a well designed software will also help improve reading skills. Will probably get it for my kids to see if they can improve in web reading.

    I purchased Acereader last year and since then I’ve been using it regularly. It’s indeed easy to use, but rather designed for students and adults. Kids maybe bored as it doesn’t have a children focused interface, but I can be wrong here. The different learning modes are very effective, but they also add some variety during learning. I underestimated that when I started with speed reading, but now I try to make my sessions as appealing as possible. Some days I only go for easy tasks, load an interesting eBook to practice with, on other days I go serious and run a speed reading and comprehension test. After all I doubled my reading speed, but I had to set a goal to keep my motivation.
