Take Away: Apparently if the first and last letters are correct, the rest don't matter.


Scrambled Text

About half of your friends can. It's an interesting feature of our minds. Apparently if the first and last letters are correct, the rest don't matter. Try unscrambling the words when they are by themself. That's way harder.

Can you read the following?

fi yuo cna raed tihs, yuo hvae a sgtrane mnid too. Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.

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 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 th e rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! if you can raed tihs forwrad it.

Yes I can read it too so is this ability a natural feature of neural network recognition stimulated by in context sequencing or could this capability be coded by forard and reverse markov modelling?
