Spritz app could boost your reading speed





A new reading system known as Spritz has been developed to enable faster reading on devices with smaller screens.

The developers of the app say reading time is mostly spent moving your eyes from one word to the next, but Spritz displays the most important part of each word in exactly the same place on the screen, keeping your eyes in the same place.

BBC Click’s Spencer Kelly finds out more and puts the system to the test by challenging Dr Catherine Brown, Convenor and Senior Lecturer in English at New College of the Humanities, London to a speed reading competition.
