      User Stories

      • As a Greenpeace supporter, I want to see the reading time for articles so I know approximately how long it will take me to read them.
      • As a Greenpeace author or editor, I want to show the (automatically generated) reading time to a post so that readers are encouraged to click through and read articles.


      • should be styled according to our design systems / fonts
      • solution should have support for non-latin characters
      • should investigate both manual and dynamic (generated automatically based on word count) options for setting reading time (automatic for MVP)
      • solution should have ability to indicate which post types reading time shows up on
      • if we decide to move forward with this feature, we should define success metrics and possibly a/b test to see if it does, in fact, increase time on page/scrolling distance, etc.  (Striking this through as a non-tech requirement, but jmarubay let us know if there is something needed from our end)
      • Investigate videos length estimation for certain providers.
