: Really? People with dyslexia read by combining separate letters into sounds and then
trying out what the word might be. The reason us non-dyslexics can read this so easily is because, even in 1337-speak, we recognize the words
. You don't have to stop at every 3 or 4 or 5 and think "3 is e", "4 is a" or "5 is s".
This is indeed a remarkable feat of the human brain, but calling someone who can not read this "stupid" would be prejudice. There are, of course, varying degrees of dyslexia. But I can guarantee my brother would take over 15 minutes to decipher this message. Yet he is one of the most intelligent people I personally know.
