This article evaluates the standardized Greek version of the International Reading Speed Texts (IReST) set, which enriches interlanguage comparisons and international clinical studies of reading performance. Moreover, it investigates how specific textual and subject-related characteristics modulate the variability of reading speed across texts and readers.
Currently Precision Vision, Inc. manufactures a variety of reading speed and reading acuity charts including Radner, MNRead, IReST, and Colenbrander Charts. These charts account for our library of twenty-two (22) different languages including: English, Spanish, Hispanic, Brazilian/Portuguese, German, Greek, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Swedish, Italian, French, Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Hebrew, Polish, Japanese, Slovenian, Turkish, Norwegian, and Tagalog.
Browse through our highly standardized multilingual reading tests that are developed for clinical practice and research.
Q: What is the process for translating & validating the language charts?
