Welcome to the Readable.io Blog!
This site was first launched in 2011 as Readability-Score.com. It started out as a home for a pet project of Dave Child, an enthusiastic web developer and budding entrepreneur.
Initially a simple text analysis tool, the core functionality has remained free ever since the site was first launched. Since then a whole suite of useful readability tools has been added, including:
- Several new readability scoring algorithms
- File processing functionality
- A readability API
- Automated alerts to monitor your website readability and keyword density
In early 2017, the site moved to its new permanent home - Readable.io!
This blog is an opportunity to talk about language - to explore what makes text readable, to share tips and tricks for great writing. And perhaps to dig up the occasional curiosity from the depths of the dictionary.
Premium Subscribers get access to a whole host of specialist readability tools, including text, URL and file scoring, from as little as $5 per month!
- Unlimited Text Readability
- File (Word Docs, PDFs, etc) Scoring
- Bulk Text Readability
- Bulk URL Readability
- Readability API
"A really great tool for writers who care more about clarity than flourish."
