There is no question the brain makes an excellent, if not the best Digital Signal Processor.
I am personally amazed what SSB signals my brain can actually copy in very crowded conditions.
Yes, when it comes when it comes to CW, I am not even just ok.
To be a CW operator in a contest, you have to have some sort of commitment and dedication. You can't just do it once or twice a year. For a new ham, same story. Practiced and dedication, etc. You have built up a core of excellent CW listening skills. For those of you that are true high-speed ops, I am in awe.
So, don't go so hard on those hams where 'sound reading' is not a natural talent. I could just as easily say that all you CW ops could be writing better Ham Radio Software. After all, it is just another skillset.
Personally, I know (at 61) that if I was to spend 10 minutes a day doing something like MorseRunner, etc., my speed would start to improve hugely.
