Testing Reading Comprehension

This Demonstration tests reading comprehension by flashing words from a passage of Alice in Wonderland at a fixed speed. The average reading speed is about 250 words per minute (wpm) [1]. You can choose settings for light colors and text size, which are among various options that affect reading speed.
