The training of readers in secondary school is a problem that requires effective alternatives. This article presents theoretical aspects that are based on the design of educational software called "Intelligent Reading", as well as on its activities and contents. The program is aimed at the development of fluidity and comprehension, and consists of a teacher's and a reader's module. To evaluate the program's efficiency and identify forms of perfecting it, an analysis has been made of the students' performance in the program. The study describes the results of using the most recent version of the software in a public secondary school. The results show that most of the students improve with this version, but that their performance is not homogenous. In general, the young people make positive remarks about the program.
