This is a little reading-speed visualizer I made for myself. When recording, I have a tendency to read a little too fast for what I opine to be optimal for listening comfort. Sometimes I consciously start at my slower-than-normal pace, but after a while I just speed up and then wonder why my tongue is tripping over words.
I made this tool to help me practice my speaking/reading speed. I tried to find a similar tool online, but all the "reading speed" searches only yielded websites that wanted to help you read faster. What's with the obsession about speed? Slow down and enjoy the ride.
Does not scroll automatically for long content. But this was not intended for long content.
Uses fixed-div overlay to highlight the words, so scrolling or resizing the page will cause the highlight to appear briefly in the wrong place.
I tried to smooth out the movement of the highlight box with CSS animation, but it's still a bit janky.
Preparation of the text involves wrapping every "word" (space-delimited) item in a span, so very long content (longer than 2000 characters) may take a while.
Newlines/paragraphs in the source text are ignored.
