Frequently Asked Questions



Q. What is Readability?

Readability is the ease with which a reader can understand a piece of text. The readability of text depends on the complexity of vocabulary and syntax. Our Readability Report uses various readability measurement methods to determine how difficult a piece of content is to read.

Q. What Readablity Formulas Do You Use?

Our Readability Report uses a number of established formulas to determine the readability of a piece of content.

  • Flesch-Kincaid Reading Ease
  • Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level:
  • Gunning-Fog Score
  • Coleman-Liau Index
  • SMOG Index
  • Automated Readability Index


Q. What is a Good Readability Score?

That depends on who your audience is! Our Readability Score provides the estimated "grade level" and approximate age that a reader will likely need to be to understand your content. Content that is targeting the general public should aim for a grade level around 8.

Q. Does this work on languages other than English?

Some readability formulas use the number of syllables in words and sentances to calculate readability scores. The syllable counter used in this report assumes English phonetics, so some scores for other languages may not be accurate.

The Automated Readability Index and Coleman-Liau Index do not count syllables and therefore should produce reasonable results in most European languages.
