Save text

When working you might find the need to share your result with your teammates. We also store the readspead you've set. Instead of copy/pasting the text in an email, share this url so your teammates can see the result right away.

We have to store your texts to do this. We won't read it, promise.


If you want to use the readtime in your text just type "00:00:00:0" in it. When you save the text it will automatically be replaced with the result.


What's this?

Readtime is a tool to find out how long it will take you (approximately) to read a text out loud.

How do i get going?

This program normally uses the average readspeed, but you can also adjust the speed to your personal liking.

To change the readspeed to your personal liking, time your personal speed by reading this tekst. You can then adjust the slider to match your personal time.

What does the "Save text" button do?

This gives you the possibility to save and share your text. Just copy the url and send it to anyone you like. More help here

How does it work?

Every word has a number of characters in it. The word "Four", has 4 letters. Every word of 4 letters takes about the same time to pronounce. By counting every words length and adding extra breaks for special characters such as the comma(,) and point(.) we calculate a time.
