Test Readability by URI

Test the readability of a web page:

Example web addresses:
  • http://www.example.com/ for a complete web page
  • http://www.example.com/#mainContent for part of a web page, based on a content area within a container <div id="mainContent"></div>
Note: Testing only the main content part of the page removes any skew in the results due to navigational elements

Test Readability by Direct Input


HTML is allowed - it will be stripped from the text.

Test Readability by Referer

Add a link on your web pages. You'll only be a click away from your readability scores.

To test the readability of a whole of a page

Link to us at:
<a href="http://www.read-able.com/referer.php" title="Read Able. The Readability Test Tool">
	Test Readability
</a>

To test the readability of a single area of the page

e.g. <div id="mainContent"></div> link to us at :
<a href="http://www.read-able.com/referer.php?id=mainContent" title="The Readability Test Tool">
	Test Readability
</a>
This will eliminate testing for navigational elements.

Top Tip: Why not add this link as a standard part of the footer in your page template.
