Huh. Now that's interesting.

Aoccdrnig to rsereach at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer inwaht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas thought

Still, I think it requires context. I mean, given:
iprmoatnt
one doesn't think of important. I know I think of moats. and IP addresses.

But that'd be the first level of recognition... Hmmm. Assigning each word two values. One: length of the word. Two: sum of each character, as a number. Put all the words into a 3D matrix.. rows as lengths of the word, columns as the sum. Then from there, match.

So if we could teach our OCR (and voice recognition systems) grammar, we'd get better results. But that would require the systems to have knowledge of each word. That'd be the second level of recognition.

The third level would be common sense. That's going to be hard, considering how little of it's around. But just so it doesn't come up with "That tree humped." or something equally absurd. Of course, it depends on context... so...
