I have seen this before. I have a printed out example to help explain to friends who can;t understand how I have a sight problem and yet can use the computer.
Dot to Dot puzzles are another good example - you can ofter 'see' the picture without the dots being filled in, particularly if it is an image you are familiar with.
I rarely go to live concerts but in Dec 2004 I went to see my favourite band. I went 3 weeks into the tour and had seen enlarged pictures from my friends who had been to the earlier shows. When i got to my particular gig I really did not expect to see anything on stage and yet I actually did - well my brain made it seem I did because it filled in missing info from what it had stored. Needless to say it made me extreemly happy and also made me realise just how awesome the brain is.

This truly is an amazing phenomenon. (No, I'm not going to try to write that way...) The really interesting part to me is not only that the first and last letters have to be correct for the text to be easily readable, but also that the intervening letters have to be correct, or at least reasonably close, even though jumbled. People can pick out typos almost as readily (if not as quickly) in these partially scrambled words as they can in normal words. Weird, huh?

Nice find, Kelly
I was amazed to find that I could read your post at normal speed. It is truly unbelievable what the human mind can do without us even realizing what's happening until it's pointed out.

From a parent's viewpoint...this is why teaching your child to read can be SO frustrating...because we, as people who have been reading for so long...don't actually read.

I often have to take a mental time-out when I am helping my son (age 7) with his reading...that explains why. He is actually the only one reading at that time. I am just looking....

That is the reason it is very hard to proof read your own work - you know what you are saying and your mind knows what you are saying but your eyes don't see that it is wrong. The best way to proofread something is to read it backwards - I did it when I worked for a General in the Air Force.
