What is Readability Software?
Simply defined, readability software is a computer application that automates the tedious and time-consuming tasks of determining a document's target reading level. Two such powerful readability software applications include Micro Power and Light's Readability Calculations and Readability PLUS. [ BUY NOW ]

In past decades you needed the skills of a mathematician or linguist (or both!) to use complicated "reading formulas" to figure out the reading level of your documents.

The old way is now obsolete.

Both of our readability software programs, Readability Calculations and Readability PLUS, analyze the words and sentences in your document and determine the reading level and grade level -- in seconds -- using up to nine popular readability formulas!

Both Readability Calculations and Readability PLUS work on any type of document -- reports, business letters, articles, books, manuals, academic texts, literature, you name it!

Why use Readability Software?
Many unskilled writers and non-writers write for the wrong grade-level. They confuse and frustrate their readers by using too many difficult words and lengthy sentences. Writing for the wrong grade-level has adverse results: if readers can't understand your document, how do you expect your readers to react or act to your message?

Use Readability Calculations or Readability PLUS to find out if your readers can understand what you write, and then simplify or improve your document to meet their reading level to achieve the best result.

You need readability software right now when you want to:
