But, see, I did see something one time that was the same mixed interior letters that was easy to read. Myth busted?

It depends on the text.
The easy to read passage you saw was specially composed to be, well, easy to read.

Let's go to the tape:
Anicodrcg to a reeacrschh at Cigdbrmae Uretinisvy,
...

Easy to read, right? Well, not really. In fact, I find that line hard to read.

Good thing the text you remember as "easy to read" was
Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy,
...

Wow. Just what "scrambling" has happened here? "Cmabrigde"? That's letters 1,3,2,4,5,6,8,7,9. "Aoccdrnig"? 1,4,2,3,6,5,8,7,9.

These are very uninspiring scrambles. And very easy to decode, because most letters are mostly in the same place most of the time, or at least are near where they should be.

See the discussion at

for more details.
