Yup. You don’t read it wrong. This extension is able to help you reading text from website. In the first look, probably it sounds ridiculous… why should you need help in reading?
If we look from science perspective, many of neuroscience experts said that reading text in website has basic different with reading book, since website caused so many distortion in our effort to read. For example, template colors and font type which made us lazy to read overall text, so knowledge we got from reading website commonly shallow.
Spread, help you to overcome such obstacle by displaying text in a screen, similar with video, so our attention would only focused on the text we want to read. Besides, Spread also has another benefit, which is supporting speed reading technique.

After installing this extension, you can use it directly. How to use it is, you just have to do highlight on text you wanted, then right click on it. Then you’ll see speed read selection option.
When you click on that option, there would be a pop up window appeared, which is similar like a video screen, directly displayed the text. By pressing play button, the text would be displayed per part, makes you possible to concentrate reading it. Your focus would be centered to video screen, which makes your concentration would be directed to the text. If you watch and feel it in detail, you’ll feel that you’ll be easier to understand the text content which you read by this way than viewing the text directly on website which is full with distortion distracted your concentration as I discussed before.
