Understandable, but I wouldn't go so far as to say easier.
Of course, it only works with words common enough to be familiar.

There are only 74 words in the English language that most of us use everyday. The rest are superfluous (superfluous isn't one of those 74 words). That's the reason why the research works because the human mind can easily remember those 74 words. :)

You must fix the last letter as well as the first. I was actually thrown there for a second.

I wonder if it works with more explicitly accurate or technical words ...

See if you can guess.

mrvaoules ?

ecitnnig ?

Or is it easier when in used in a sentence?

The report from oncology showed marvelous and e(?i c n?)ting results for cancer treatment.

Yes, it is easier with whole sentences, but all but that one word 'ecitnnig' wasn't difficult to read. It's also easier with simple words and it's also easier in ones mother tongue.
