Xfce users might be familiar with the useful dictionary utility that comes installed by default. There’s a chance users may overlook the highly customizable speed-read trainer utility coming along with it.
The utility flashes each word (in the same order) in some custom paragraphs at predefined speed and the user should be able to read the words. Make sure you add words which you do not come across regularly for better results. Longer paragraphs would help too.
A few days of training can improve your speed-reading capabilities greatly.

- limit words to show per minute
- mark paragraphs
