The web based reader is free and will not require you to download or install anything. There is also no sign up need in order to start reading. The initial setting is set to make you read 300 words per minute, one word at a time. You can manage the settings to your preference. Since the service requires no login or account sign-up, the settings will be written to a cookie on your computer. As long as you don’t delete your browser’s cookies, the settings will remain in effect. If you use Zap Reader on a different computer, the default settings will take effect so you might want to change them first.

Using the reader requires no special skill. Just copy the content from your document or favorite website and paste it on the Zap Reader text box and hit the “Zap it!” button. The text will play according to the settings that you configured.
