Question Please add Spritz to Calibre

I'm not positive this is the correct place for this post, if not please move it to the right place.

I am writing to see if any of the developers has considered implementing Spritz into Calibre? I came across that about a year ago and have been waiting for someone to come up with a Windows e-book program that I could use it with as currently it is only available for certain smart phones. (Ideally at like Amazon to add it to their Kindles, but I'll believe that when I see it!).

If you're not familiar with Spritz, it is a cool program to help you read faster. Here is the link: Spritz

I hope someone can figure out a way to add this as I would be able to get through books a lot faster!

It would have to be multiplatform and able to be embedded as open-source. It looks as though they require signup in order to access a closed SDK.

And Kovid might not be interested in implementing this when there are other things to work on. How much general appeal might there be for this?

This just feels like spam for spritz.

^^This just feels like spam period.

While we are playing the rudeness game, anyway...


Someone genuinely wants a feature because they think it would be cool.
Just beause you think anyone who disagrees with you is wrong, does not require rudeness.

I happen to agree this method is unwarranted hype -- but I don't need to insult people who like it.
I don't either have a problem with more options.

I may think it won't happen (not in calibre anyway) but that opinion need not go any further than feasibility issues.

There is also an OpenSpritz available at this address: OpenSpritz

RSVP and "Spritz"-style speed reading has been growing a lot over the years, especially with Spritz finally coming out of it's 3-year development cocoon. Right now, I cannot find an RSVP speed reader that opens all the types of ebook formats that Calibre can and to have Spritz/RSVP embedded right into it across all OS platforms would be a dream. Even as a plug-in, but even better as a program feature.

Chock up one more vote for speed reading in Calibre!
