As far as I know there is no easy way to do it, what you can do is to define words instead of letters.
Then if you write AEIOU in sequence it will be treat as one word, that's only if you add SPACE before and after this sequence.
Now if you want to animate words instead of individual letters, you should twirl down "Range Selector" and then open "Advanced" and change the value "Based On" to "Words", now After Effects will treat each word as one group of text.

Thanks but its not quiet what I need. In your tutorial you let the digits (0123456789) change randomly. I want to let letters change randomly but only certail letters. So I only want to use the letters: AEIOU.

Great tutorial!
I recreated it with letters but how can I specify the range of the letters? I want to have only a specfic range of letters for example only vocals (AEIOU).

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

A Motion Graphics Template, referred to as a MOGRT, is an animated sequence that is self-contained and can be used in Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Premiere Rush and Adobe After Effects, combining graphics, text, audio and video files, as well as vector or still images (including logos), to create a still or animation that can then be customized by the MOGRT user. The result is a dynamic creative tool that provides design freedom and is consistent to its users across apps and devices. Reuse, share, and even sell them!
