We all would love our readers to read every word that we write. That doesn’t always happen though. Folks who know speed reading are going to have an easier time getting through your long posts. Showing your visitors the amount of time it might take them to read your posts is one way to grab their attention. You could even include a speed reader on your site to help your readers practice their reading skills. Either way, these 5 plugins have you covered:
Rocket Reader: this plugin lets your visitors practice speed reading on your website. It shows words one by one to help readers consume your content faster.
Reading Time: shows estimated reading time and adds an animated progress bar inside your posts. The estimate is automatic but can be overridden.
Zethos for WordPress: a simple speed reading plugin that lets your visitors read your content faster. It is powered by Spritz.
Speed Reader: this simple plugin uses ORP and a simple design to enable your visitors to increase their reading speed.
Estimated Post Reading Time: this plugin calculates the average required time for reading a post and shows that on your pages.
