Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht rfist and last ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by it slef but the wrod as a wlohe.
That's exactly right and the spell checker helped me to read the following words:
According to a research at an Elisha university, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only prominent thing is that first and last letter is at the right place. The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without problem. This is because we do not read every letter by it self but the word as a whole.

Cool I didn't know that. But I still miss the spell checker Bill had here when he first started this site. I have a mild form of dyslexia. Reading isn't a problem but my spelling is horrible. It has In fact affected the amount of posts and replies I respond to. People have a way of judging the illiterate and I generally don’t put myself through the embarrassment anymore. In school I used to score above average on multiple-choice IQ tests but couldn’t write any test with essay questions to save my life.
