3. While reading regression or re-reading the text is minimal.
4. Speed and accuracy is fine and up to the mark
What I Don’t Like-Reedy
1. Non Availability for PDF Format
2. Upgrading app for ad-free usage won’t work sometimes and it’s annoying.
3. Other techniques of speed reading such as skimming and previewing are neglected while using the App.
4. Some people prefer Google TTS, but it uses a built-in Pico TTS.
5. Not suitable for advance reading practices as it was difficult to grasp the whole theme of the paragraph or whole sentences.
