    I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid. Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer inwaht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh? yaeh and I awlyas thought slpeling was ipmorantt!

    Looks like gibberish to start with but it just shows how cleaver we realy are.

    Cheers, Lee

    I'm bored so I thought I'd see if MS Word could understand that, through the spell check putting in the first word offered.

    "I consult believe that I cloud audacity uesdnatnrd what I was drained. The phenomenal power of the human mind. Occurring to an rscheearch at Cambridge Uinervtisy, it doesn’t matter inapt order the letters in a word are, the only iprmoatnt thing is that the first and last letter be in the right place. The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it outfit a problem. This is busier the human mind does not read every letter by istle, but the word as a whole. Amazing huh? Ayah and I always thought spelling was important!

    Looks like gibberish to start with but it just shows how cleaver we really are."

    Interesting ?

    Pbraloby not.

    :lesson: I seem to remember that it's got something to do with the first and last letters remaining in the some position and the others being scrambled that allows you brain to recognize the pattern of the word and what it actually is.

    its strange isn't it, you can actually read them better if you just scan it quickly. It also seems much easier to read a paragraph than a couple of words, must be to do with context. I suppose thats what make it possible to distinguish words like three and there.
