About

Flinks is a text-mode flashing word web browser. It is intended for speed-reading and/or skimming webpages and text, and doubles as a navigator of spoken text.

See the README for instructions.

Written in Python using ncurses for display and requiring lynx for rendering. Should run without trouble on any unix-like system, and with some trouble on other systems. Runs happily on very small terminals, so ought to work well on hand-helds, or even eye-glass displays... I would be very interested to see this done.

Bug reports, comments, ports etc gratefully received at mbays@sdf.lonestar.org.
