Do I need an Internet connection to be able to use the program?

The program does need to be activated at one time. The main way to activate the program is by using the online application built into the program. The program does include an alternate activation method, where users can activate the program over the phone. The Reader's Edge also offers the ability for users to access additional reading selections to be imported into the program free of charge from our website. This feature is completely optional and only limits users from accessing our latest reading selections.

Do you offer a Macintosh compatible version of The Reader's Edge?

Currently The Reader's Edge software is available only for Windows based operating systems. You can run The Reader's Edge on your Mac using Boot Camp or virtualization software, such as Parallels.

How is The Reader's Edge different when used by a child or an adult?

The only difference is the level of reading selections employed in the exercises. The program allows users to select their "Content Preference," which includes reading selections and comprehension tests based on your preference.

How long will it take to see results? Will the results last?

Learning a new skill takes time. Like most things in life, to be good at something, you must practice regularly. We guarantee that you'll at least double your reading speed in three weeks with only 15 minutes of practice every other day.

I've tried other programs and books, and they didn't work for me. Will this work?

Our approach of teaching enhanced reading skills is different than anything else that has ever been developed. We focus first on the vocabulary, using our Prime Words concept, then move users into the unique training exercises that teach how to unlearn the habits of slow readers and learn the habits and skills of fluent readers. Fluent readers read better and faster, with improved comprehension and recall.

Is The Reader's Edge suitable for individuals learning English as a second language?

Yes, as long as users of The Reader's Edge, have a minimal knowledge of, and can read English they will benefit from the program. Since users can import text in virtually any language, they can learn Speed Reading in their native language!

Is there a benefit to working with the program more than 15 minutes every other day?

The quick answer is "Yes." If you have the motivation to spend more than 15 minutes a day, your progress will be proportionally better and other benefits will become apparent to you. When reading becomes more of a pleasure rather than a chore, you will read more. And since vocabulary development is a function of reading, and reading speed and comprehension are functions of one's vocabulary, you will experience continuous improvement the more you read. It's a scientific fact that 90 percent of one's increased vocabulary development comes from what one has read since fourth grade.

What is The Reader's Edge software?

The Reader's Edge software is the most comprehensive, self-paced, user-friendly, enhanced-reading software in the world. In just a few weeks (15 to 20 minutes every other day), it teaches slow readers to double and triple reading speeds, with improved comprehension and recall. How? By teaching slow readers to un-learn slow reader habits and learn the habits of efficient speed readers.

What kind of results can I expect to receive?

Our guarantee states that you will at least double your reading speed. We don't guarantee that you will be reading thousands of words-per-minute after using the program, but you will be able to see and read multiple words at a time - and become a fluent reader.

What languages does The Reader's Edge support?

The Reader's Edge interface is only available in English. However, all exercises are capable of using text in virtually any language. This means you can import or paste text from one or more languages and use it in the reading exercises.

What makes The Reader's Edge so unique? How is it better than other programs?

The Reader's Edge self-paced speed reading program was developed by Richard Sutz, CEO of The Literacy Company. It is a research-based, scientifically solid and proprietary (patent pending) software program. The Reader's Edge brings into the 21st Century the best teachings of previous investigators, academics, researchers and pioneers, since 1880, who have contributed to the teaching of enhanced reading skills. One unique feature of The Reader's Edge is how we incorporate Prime Word's to facilitate mastering speed reading skills, i.e., to see, read and process more than one word at a time with each eye fixation, without vocalizing. These words are important to learn in order to master speed reading skills. These are just a few key points, see the Pricing & Features page for a full list of the program features.
