The Invisible Typo

How amazing is this?

It's not entirely true that this came from Caimbridge (see this article), but so long as you keep the first and last letter of a word the same, you can jumble up all of the other letters and your brain can still read it. This helps to explain: Why Typos Are So Hard to Catch.

[Tip: It's worth turning on text-to-speech in Word to help catch those pesky typos. Sometimes you can hear mistakes even if you can't see them. This doesn't work with homophones, though.]
