The Readability Test Tool

The Readability Test Tool is a handy little Bookmarklet that can be led to your bookmarks toolbar. It indicates the youngest age group that would find a webpage easy to read, along with:

  • Flesch Kincaid Reading Ease
  • Flesch Kincaid Grade Level
  • Gunning Fog Score
  • Coleman Liau Index
  • Automated Readability Index (ARI)
It is also possible to cut & paste text onto the page to test the readability.

  • Use when planning to test the accessibility for learners, especially for those with reading-related special educational needs
  • Writers could use the tool to check the suitability of their writing, particularly when writing for younger audiences
