Here's a little thing I wrote in QBasic some years ago. It invites the
user to press keys in what feels to him to be a random order. It spots
the non-randomness which is bound to be present, and starts making
predictions before the keys are pressed. Almost always, its success
rate is far better than would be expected by chance.
It's useless, of course, but amusing.
No, it got me thinking...
My wife was saying just this morning she disagreed with our school,
that our son may have dyslexia.
I had just been tooling around with my old TI-99. I thought about
writing a little Basic program to put letters on the screen and have
him hit the key to go with it, just the ones a dyslexic might mix up.
Then I thought of this program, and thought about using the entire
alphabet and all the numbers. Have it record the # of wrong responses,
# of right, per number or letter, sort percent wrong in descending
order, and see what letters or numbers top the list. See if they are
q, p, b, d, etc...
