Say it out loud.

When we read, we’re don’t necessarily see every word. It means readers can comprehend text despite spelling errors and misplaced letters in the words.

What started life as an Internet meme called ‘typoglycaemia’, and later was proved to be right, is that our brains don’t just read what they see – they also read what they expect to see…

It’s why it deosn’t mttaer waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer is in the rghit pclae.

But when you read out loud, it forces you to see the words you’ve actually written. When you read out loud, you’re more likely to spot the spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors.
