Amzanig huh? Yaeh and yuo awlyas thought slpeling was ipmorantt

You should be able to read it if you have mastery of the english language and know the words.

Translation

I couldnt believe that I could actually understand what I was reading. The phenomenal power of the human mind according to research team at Cambrigde University, it doesnt matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be inb the right place. The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without a problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself but he word as whole. Sucha a condition is appropiately called Typoglycemia.

Amazing huh? Yeah and you always thought spelling was important.

If I try to focus on the individual words, it is hard to read. But if I just glance over several words at a time, I have no trouble reading it whatsoever.

Pretty interesting. Too bad it takes some practice to read l33t.

It wasn't named Typoglycemia. But it was posted before for sure. You're right that it requires a certain proficiency in the language, something commonly taken for granted by adept users, but are failed at horribly by others.

It's not actually just the 1st and last letters that matter, but the flow of the sentence as well. That's where the proficiency issue comes in. Also, there are some words which can be spelled similarly, yet hold different meaning, thus throwing off your thought.
