New Invention Makes People Read Like Superman

AMSTERDAM -- Innovative software from Dutch company UseClark enables people to understand and remember information better and more quickly. "This has never been done before," Mark Tigchelaar, co-founder of UseClark, says. "Using this software is almost like developing a photographic memory, X-ray vision and the ability to read twice as fast."

With one click UseClark's software blurs all the irrelevant parts of a text, making it much easier to scan a document. It also gives an automatically generated summary of the text, which makes it easy to remember and share the most important points with friends and co-workers. Additionally, UseClark can guide people's eyes during reading, allowing them to absorb the information in a more relaxed way. The effect is that you read twice as quickly, with a better understanding of the text. A version of the software can also be integrated into websites, analysing how visitors read a text and helping publishers and journalists improve their writing.

The revolutionary invention will be launched at The Next Web Conference in Amsterdam on Aril 24th, where the world's latest web trends and technologies are presented. UseClark has been invited as a promising start-up. In the meantime, two Fortune 500 multinationals have already shown their interest in implementing the software in their companies.

Students, bankers, politicians, journalists or managers all have to read a wealth of information to best perform at their jobs. An average person spends 3 hours a day reading and analysing information. Most people only half-read a document or even skip entire articles. To make things worse, the majority can't remember much of what they've read the next day.

UseClark provides a solution for that. The patent-pending technology will be available as a document reader that can process all existing document types (PDF, .Doc, ePub and HTML). The software is available to students and journalists free of charge, and to companies for a fee.
