Text Jumbler

TextJumbler is pretty useless. It basically just jumbles up test is a particular fashion that allows the text to still be kinda readable.

It was based on a chain email I got a while back which explained that if all but the first and last letters of a word are jumbled up they could still be read.

To test it out I built this little application that jumbles up text in this manner.

There is suposed to be some flash content here

I find this application useful for annoying friends that are sticklers for spelling.

As a side note I did a bit of searching on the web and found this page where the author explains where this theory started and explores the science behind it.

  1. It would be awesome if you could enter a phrase, then copy the URL and send it someone…

  2. Not a bad idea, but I’m not sure how many people would use it. Also, i would have to store everyones messages, which could get a bit out of hand. Thanks for the idea though
