Have you ever felt completely overwhelmed by pages and pages of online text, like what you find in research papers, news magazine articles, and technical documentation? As you scroll through these long documents, you find yourself losing your spot, rereading the same sentences over and over, and generally causing yourself headaches, disorientation, and burnout.
Line Reader Line Reader What if there was one simple application could help guide your eyes while reading, making digesting long electronic documents easier and more efficient? That’s the core reason behind Line Reader, along with a few bonus features that will make this app an indispensable part of your user experience!
Line Reader addresses a dilemma that we all face at some point – how to manage reading long documents online. If we were reading a book or printed article, we could use an index card to mark our place and guide the path of our vision. Since holding an index card up to your computer screen is impractical, we’ve created Line Reader to navigate you through the rough waters of electronic documentation.
With Line Reader, your mouse cursor transforms into a handy reading aid, taking the form of a horizontal line that you use to track your spot in any online document or web page. You can customize the length, width, and color of your line, as well as invoke a secondary helper line that serves to further emphasize the location of your cursor. One click, and your line flips to the vertical, which is convenient for highlighting entire paragraphs, steps in a recipe, or assembly instructions.
