Calculate read time for tutorials

An Idea

To my mind, it'd be a neat feature to have.


Here's how this feature is implemented at Medium:
Read time is based on the average reading speed of an adult (roughly 275 WPM). We take the total word count of a post and translate it into minutes. Then, we add 12 seconds for each inline image. Boom, read time.

    Doesn't strike me as very useful honestly. Reading speeds vary a lot, and trying to follow instructions is entirely different from normal reading as well, I believe.

    If anything I'd say a word count would be much more useful than a time estimate, at least.

    This would be nice to have as an optional field to go alongside the difficulty measure.
