Could "not even I can" be correct?

I am thinking the same thing.

The normal speed is too fast, not even a Brazilian understands this.

I can't either is correct in English use but not here, why?

No one I know says "Nor can I." We say "I can't either", which wasn't accepted.

The English for this sentence is wrong, it should be "Not even I can."

Não posso ler isso! - Eu sou brasileiro e nem eu posso!

I can't read that! - I am brazilian and not even I can!
