Simply enable visual mode (v), highlight the characters you want inverted, and hit \is.

For a single word you can use vw (or viw):

viw\is
vnoremap <silent> <Leader>is :<C-U>let old_reg_a=@a<CR>
 \:let old_reg=@"<CR>
 \gv"ay
 \:let @a=substitute(@a, '.\(.*\)\@=',
 \ '\=@a[strlen(submatch(1))]', 'g')<CR>
 \gvc<C-R>a<Esc>
 \:let @a=old_reg_a<CR>
 \:let @"=old_reg<CR>

Comments

If your Vim has +rightleft (check vim --versions), the following visual mode map does the job:

vmap <Leader>fR c<C-O>:set ri<CR><C-R>"<Esc>:set nori<CR>

A map that reverses the sequence of lines (again, visual mode):

vmap <Leader>fr :<c-u>set lz<CR>'>o<Esc>'<O<Esc>V'>j:<c-u>'<+1,'>-1g/^/m '<<CR>'
dd:set nolz<CR>
