Stretch is a speed-reading program that offers exercises designed to improve reading speed and comprehension. These exercises are an extension of the flash-card method used in school, but with much greater scope for vocabulary and the capability of flashing more than one word at a time. Stretch flashes a group of words whose number is set according to your ability. This number can be anywhere between 1 and 100 words flashed at a time in the full version. When you type those words in, Stretch assesses your accuracy and scores your performance based on the number of words, flash duration, and use of capitals and punctuation. As with any computer game, you play against your best score. Scrolling and Consecutive Flash are included to exercise postacquisition assimilation or recognition and comprehension speeds. At higher reading speeds, users have observed delays between acquiring the text and recognising what the text says; Stretch now addresses this challenge.Stretch 2004 has been given scrolling flash and consecutive flash. These features exercise recognition and interpretation to improve comprehension speed.
