Yep this has been going around for years but this one is a little different. So amazing!

I might can read this way faster than the other way(normal spelling) because I cant focus on the spelling to sound out the word.

Maybe...I stumbled on a new way to speed read just mix your words spelling up!

I think it works best when the reader is very familiar with the words used in the text. The reader predicts what's coming next and as long as a few letters are there for a clue, the brain will tell you what it is. However, if the vocabulary is unknown or the subject unknown then the reader is at a loss.

How many of you can read this?

Yes OB, your point is clearly displayed by your example :thumbsup: . Its incredible how jumbled up letters can be so confusing, as shown by your example and then by comparrison, if the simplest of rules are added, like the topic point at the beginning states:

aoccdrnig to rseraech at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.

Change any letter except for the first and the last, we are able to then understand what is written much more easily simply because of the processes our brains use in order to interpret what is written, :flowers:

I think the difficulty experienced in reading your example where the words are ALL jumbled without using the rule stated in the first example, helps to prove these findings :trumpet: .

I know its mad isnt it ha ha :trumpet: I'm interested to know what it does say, and then scramble it up using the "all letters scrambled except the first and last" rule and see the comparison :flowers:

LOVE IT!! :thumbsup:

Thats not right.It must be german or something so no wonder we cant read it.

If you do the first and last letter rule these words can never make sense:

"wto, dre, gor" And so on in that paragraph posted above.
