No problem that I see because it was easy to see you werent just lazy or uneducated in your posts. I dont care how you spell your thoughts.. just make sure they are great thoughts.


By the way, #6 question on the dyslexia screen is : Do you find you still have spelling mistakes in your writing
even after Spell Check?

Google seems to baffle some folks, so I have provided them a link to read up on a common problem that they cant seem to pick up on in their rush to bash someone : www.interdys.org...

In the past four years, I have developed the math version of dyslexia. It's dyscalculia. My numbers jumble now. I had to give up 'doing the check book'. It was starting to look really wild ...

People sometime care more about the packaging of the message than the actual message. I apologize in advance, I turn into a grammar Nazi every now and then.

There is an edit button on the top of your post.

I've noticed I have light problems with letter order and sometimes my brain sees the wrong words. It takes a lot of energy to make sure I am writing the right things. I read over my posts a few times mainly for thought continuity, but the red squiggly lines tell me enough.

I mix number order up easy too.

Your post was hard for me to read.
Good luck.

Its always easy to tell when dyslexics do that. Its not constant, but they often times choose the wrong word when there's multiple choice in spellcheck and Id rather figure out the word with bad spelling than the whole wrong word! LOL!

A dyslexic (or someone with dyscalculia) won't see the errors in order to fix them.
I could stare and stare at the check book and see nothing wrong.
My husband would have to point out the errors to me. I simply couldn't see any.
It looked fine to me.

The flaming and trolling comes in like the tide and I have noticed it coincides more with vacation time from school.

I know the pain.

Dylexia here.

Reading is fine but spelling is terrible.

It pisses me off when people treat you like a 12 year kid.

thanks for starting this thread, it's a good reminder...I have only corrected spelling of others a couple of times.... the 1 thing that is really annoying is a really big post and no paragraphs!!!!! I can't read more than about 3 sentences and my brain goes tilt, I can't finish reading it.

as long as I can understand what is being said, a little misspellings is not a big deal.

I know someone who is super smart but can't spell worth beans, thank god computers and spell check came along while he was still in school!!! When he has to write long hand, his brain gets really tired and he can't think anymore.

your post actually highlights whats wrong with people,if you had left it at people being lazy then that was fine but you then included uneducated people.

so uneducated people shouldn,t post?i consider myself uneducated through no fault but my own cause in my school days i just wasn,t interested,big regrets today but should it mean i can,t post here?

and what about the people who are uneducated but not their fault should they also not post here?i don,t see the big deal in how a post is written as long as you get what its about.

Thanks for bringing this to every one's attention
You are right, there needs to be more awareness for people such as yourself that have Dyslexia.

This is a very courageous thing for you to do & don't give up on posting.
We all have our flaws, no one is perfect, I know I'm not.

I have problems getting my thoughts out of my head to the PC without getting them screwed up due to the fact I'm focusing on my typing, not the thoughts themselves. Then I forget what I was trying to say.
And my comment loses it's luster
And yeah, thank goodness for 'spell checker'...like right now, half my words are misspelled. LOL.

Thanks again for posting this and don't let others discourage you
ATS is a site is to learn & share.....this is not an English-spelling class

Much respect~
snarky

I was responding to a question.

OP asked "I can't edit my post!?" or something like that. I wasn't being snarky or anything. I am only on the edge of having problems but when I do I can't see it either. I choose entorely wrong words a lot of the time, but at this point I have trained myself to stare for the red squiggles.

Let's not even talk about my spelling issues. Sometimes I can correct a word in 10 different ways and still not have it right so I have to give up and make a new snetence haha

perhaps she meant MIS-educated, like folks who use commas or semi colons instead of apostrophes hmmmm?
[though laziness often is a factor]

or the many members who were "educated" using the PhonicsMethod,
the stupidest way to teach english writing IMO.

advantage is right about spell checkers also

I've a touch of dyslexia myself, shows up when I'm really tired, not as bad as my lil bro and sis though, those two will even write letters backward making it look like russian...
