I read this at my normal speed, which is at about a page every 30 seconds. That's pleasure reading, as in novels. Speed reading, that's different. For speed reading the letters must be in the proper sequence, as it is a form of bulk pattern recognition. THis is the same as normal reading (for most of us), but the rate which they are assimilated at in speed reading makes the proper spelling and organization critical.

I also read this at my normal pace. Maybe it has something to do with my feeling that I'm developing dyslexia. When writing quickly, I tend to skip a letter or two ahead of myself and have to go back and fill in the blanks.

Took some time to make out it's "there".
Whereas the original post was easy reading.

Innsteerstig. You have to choose how you mix up the letters quite carefully otherwise it's difficult to decode. Although I could read the thread's first example easily, I'll bet that "innsteerstig" slowed you down - it appears that easy decoding requires that the new arrangement must not look anything like a valid word. Anyone using this as an excuse for textspeak will still find themselves in tluobre.

Actually it wasn't "There" but rather "Three".

Srory, nevertheless I'm not as dyslexic/non-dyslexic as I'd thought.

I'm sure the order matters. What if I wrote:

iieettnnsrg

or

mtdrooear

Those would probably slow most of us down. So some rules probably need to be applied in order to make it easily readable.

The first took a second or so, the second I had no problem with. I suspect the context is important, the more information you have, such as use in a longer sentence, the quicker you can decode the wdros.
