Got this in an e-mail from my dad. It's pretty neat.
That's been floating around for years...
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!
It's funny cos most students would call it Uinervtisy
anytime i read that stuff it makes my head hurt.... i need words to be spelled out close to correct in order to have any idea what is going on
senpd fvie yreas wtih icr and you get the gsit of tnhigs
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
Yeah, thats pretty old hat. Still interesting though, i can read that without any problems, in fact i didn't notice it was wrong until i wondered what the point was
i dont think it works with acronyms though - the only word i had to think about there was icr
Yes, it is old but very interesting.
yeah i was amazed when i read that thing like 3 years ago on someones profile
It's neat. Your eyes lie to your mind - and your mind sees right through it. Processes the words, not the letters.
i wonder if it works with other languages. probably not cuz english is special!!!
tgneo una fteisa en mis pneaotlas
hm i guess it works in spanish...
Well I couldn't read it. But then again I can't read regular spanish either..
knowing regular spanish would help a little...
yea that's an amazing thing i did notice it before but never really paid attention to it
