Rapid Perception Trainer

The goal of this program is to help train the eye-brain connection to rapidly recognize text.

The inspiration for this program comes from a Flash application I used almost a decade ago, that had a similar concept, but was missing options to customize the training sequence. The words that are used are mostly basic English words as they appear on Wikionary.


To use the program you can download or clone this repository and build it or you can download a prebuilt binary version from here.


If you downloaded a .ZIP file extract it and navigate to the executable .JAR file.

In Windows it is sufficient to just double click the .JAR file. You can also start the program by typing the following inside the folder with the .JAR file:

java -jar <filename>.jar

How to build

Maven is used to build the program from source code. Just execute the following Maven goal to build the binary version:

mvn jfx:jar
