Can You Raed Tihs was developed to help you explore the interesting phenomenon that people do not look at a word one letter at a time but at the word as a whole. If the first and last letters are left unchanged, the middle letters can be "scrambled" without making the word much more difficult to read.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. This is a sttrange phenomenon. I could read the utterly scrambled words at just about normal reading speed but found that I was sounding them out in my mind, as spoken words, rather than simply scanning them. I am impressed.
Weirder than that is the fact that I did this using only the right hand screenshot and didn't need to download the program itself. Isn't that horirlbe of me?
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. First off i'm have ADD but more relevant here I'm dyslectic. This is scary, over the years i have managed to more of less overcome my dyslexia (i now read and right slower then most but normally). The Crazy thing is that i find words "ciphered" this way to be easier to read smoother, like i don't have to think wile reading. this however only works some of the time.
I find small words like "tihs" and "raed", no trouble but longer words like "trouble" frequently impossible to read. This may be b/c 1st and last letters are not the only one that need to be swopped... scratch that, reverse it. The orangemen of the letters in the middle does matter. Though they do not need to be in order.
Also i frequently read using the Shape of a word "Brooklyn" is much easier to read then "BROOKLYN".
It's a cool tool though, and a interesting concept.
But, good god man, Where's the Spell Check?!?
