[New Feature] Estimated Reading Time

BetterDocs’ ‘Estimated Reading Time’ feature calculates the approximate time it will take for users to read through your documentation. Using advanced algorithms, it considers factors such as word count and reading speed to provide an accurate estimation. For example, the below documentation will take 1 minute and 7 seconds to read.
