Enter the total number of words and average reading speed into the calculator to determine the time it would take to read the speech or presentation. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## Words To Seconds Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the duration of speech or presentation based on the number of words it contains.

T = W / S

Variables:

• T is the time in seconds it would take to read the speech or presentation
• W is the total number of words in the speech or presentation
• S is the average reading speed in words per second

To calculate the time it would take to read a speech or presentation, divide the total number of words by the average reading speed. This will give you the estimated duration in seconds.

## What is Words To Seconds?

Words to Seconds is a tool or converter that estimates the duration of speech or presentation based on the number of words it contains. It calculates the time it would take to read out loud a certain number of words, considering the average reading speed. This tool is useful for public speakers, presenters, or anyone preparing a speech or presentation to manage their time effectively.

## How to Calculate Words To Seconds?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Words To Seconds.

1. First, determine the total number of words in the speech or presentation (W).
2. Next, determine the average reading speed in words per second (S).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = T = W / S.
4. Finally, calculate the time in seconds it would take to read the speech or presentation (T).
5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total number of words in the speech or presentation (W) = 500

average reading speed in words per second (S) = 2
