Speed Reading

I made a simple speed reading program, which I place in the public domain. To use this you'll paste text from the book you want to speed read into the top text box, for example from Huckleberry Finn (the plain text version) then press Start Speed Reading and then follow along with the word in the center as it goes through the text. The goal is that you slowly decreace the delay time until you can read at a much faster pace than you can before, because this forces you to read faster than you can pretend to say the words in your head.

You can also find this hosted here, and note that this should work on mobile devices as well since it's completely web based.
