    As a cixelsid person, I was aware of this. When I was diagnosed with dislexia in grade 12, I went to a bunch of workshops, one of which covered this topic. Before the workshops I could only read about 5-6 pages per hour, now I'm able to top 30 pages per hour. It's all about the first and last letters. This of course does not help with the writing aspect, but that is another story!

    I think anyone who has spent years online has developed error correction. :)

    this is very old, but yes very interesting. When i was at college i thought i would be a smart ass with one of my papers and wrote a 5000 word report just like that above. Obviously it took a hell of alot of time, but i passed it! They did say though that i had to rewrite it properly to enter it into my portfolio :p

    It's neat. Your eyes lie to your mind - and your mind sees right through it. Processes the words, not the letters.
