Mostly intelligible, but I found that there are words which mostly consist of vowels, like idea, that are impossible to fit into that notation.
There's a very practical application of that though.
When I left school, I took a secretarial course and learned Pitman's shorthand. I never really mastered all those lines, dots and squiggles, but we used to get a small-ad in magazines and newspapers advertising a correspondence course in "Speedwriting". This ad had the caption "F u cn rd ths, u cn b a scrtry nd ern lts of mny". I never took that course, but the idea stuck with me and I still use that notation even now. It's stood me in good stead through many years of taking minutes of business meetings and endless notes for lectures and other transcriptions.
I can see it for note taking, but reading it takes so much more time!

I learned Gregg shorthand in school. It was great for taking notes at lectures in all my other classes. The only problem was that sometimes a classmate wanted to copy my notes if they had missed a class!
