Mind Tricks!


Humans tend to read by recognizing words as sets of letters in a certain pattern. This "pattern recognition" system has an unexpected side benefit: It helps us read words in spite of typos.

Try it out. Skim over the text below, read it "lazily", see how it goes. If you get stuck on a specific word, move the mouse over it. The unscrambled version should appear in the status bar of your browser. Or, if the selected text is just too weird (say, it is in Latin or a poem), just move your mouse into the grey area below and see the complete unscrambled text.
