comment How long does it take to read a sentence with X number of characters?
This is based purely on a completely unscientific approach of tweaking the numbers and having a script rotate through several different paragraphs of differing lengths. I read each one slowly enough to completely comprehend what i was reading and if it rotated through too fast, then i increased the timing, too slow, i decreased it until i found the sweet spot. But it would seem that the reading speed for me, at least, is not entirely linear as some paragraphs seemed far faster to read than others of similar lengths.
