Readability Tools

by F.

Here are the free tools I’ve found so far.

  1. Juicy Studio.
    Analyzes the text at the other end of a URL.

  2. Readability Info.
    Looks at a URI or a Word doc.

  3. Lexicool
    Cut-and-paste text into the box, then hit the button.

  4. Okapi.
    More like, “Oh. Crappy.” But different strokes and all that.

  5. I Love Jack Daniels.
    No idea what the connection is to whiskey, but seems pretty good.

  6. University of Texas CS Department.
    Only gives you Flesch. Nice interface, though.

There are other tools out there, but they aren’t free.
