Aladyblond mentioned this kind fo thing a while ago, I came across this text on a site and found it interesting, nothing much to do with AI really but nevermind:

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 deosn't mttaer inwaht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by >istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh? yaeh and !

I saw this in a little box in a default Mambo setup once. :)

It gives a whole new meaning to Dyslexia! They keep trying to treat it but what if it's not even necessary if people can still read anyway?

The only place where spelling is important is in web design and computer programming, where a simple letter out of place in say, a keyword, would render the program, script, etc. non-working.

Another fun thing is to have a friend write something on paper, or take a newspaper or anything in print, turn it upside-down and see if you can read it. :)

Or, have some text like you have above printed out and turned upside down and see if you can read it!
LOL!

I know people who often sit at desk and turn the paper around for you so you can read it and they discuss and read it upside down. 
They do this so much they read upside down just as well as right side up.

What you get used to. :zdg_spin

I'm not even going to think of asking what your lesser talents might be, ~alady.  :crazy2 :2funny

But then, I've always been able to read backwards, up, down and any of those with the letters jumbled.
Someways just a bit slower reading than others.     :grin
