That's amazing! I started to read your post and it was tough for the first couple of words....then kerchunck. The brain kicked in and I could read it almost as readily as what I normally type.
Hmmm....maybe that's a reflection on my typing more than on my reading :> )
Sooo, I got my wife to come down and read it. The same thing. She stumbled over the first few words and then read the rest correctly.
I guess it not my lousy typing after all!

yes, in a real time chat, if you're close the brain picks it up correctly. Problems are always with punctuation and our inablity to see the speaker and know their gests.
And the biggest clue to the word is the context of the sentence. I can often understand someone with a very strong accent when I know the context of what we are discussing, but if they call me up and say a sentence cold, with no context, I can't make out a single word of it.
I have actually known this fact for several years. Since my wife is Russian, watching her change words from the Russian cyrillic alphabet to the Latin [english] alphabet has given me plenty of practice!!! Her spelling may not always be correct but I understand what's been written.
And my mother-in-law has given me several wonderful Russian beekeeping books, but my reading of Russian cyrillic makes for very slow going...
