I am also one of the 55 that can read and understand what you have written; once you get started you do forget that the middle of the word is just a random jumble of letters Maurice

You mean we don`t need a Cambridge education to read that total mess?

You recognise that 55/100 means given a random sample of people more than half are going to be able to read it, which means more people are going to be able to read it than not. On the plus side, this means we are in the majority! :)

Ah, but remember: the only reason your mind is able to "figure out" the correct words instantly inspite of the misplaced letters is because it already "knows" the actual correctly spelled words through education and training. Now THAT’S amazing!
