Dyslexia is sometimes both a curse and a blessing.
It takes many forms. Dyslexic person's brains do not process information like those of so called "normal persons". This allowed Einstein to formulate his theories about physics that changed the world, and race car driver Jackie Stewart to become a living legend in his own time.
No two persons are exactly the same. Persons afflicted (or gifted) with dyslexia have problems with reading and writing, and left and right, and other things; but are often gifted at the genius level in areas that most "normal persons" struggle with.
So does firefox.
That is awesome. I'm so gonna remember that one
both correct according to the dictionaries (English)
spell checker says wrong
i can trace the spelling back 600 years for Colour
but here its wrong
Hey nothings perfect well accept TFF of course
I never looked at it that way
In my case I tested very low for the reading and writing but scored in the upper scale for maniacal aptitude (way high) witch answered the question of why I always was able to take apart and fix just about anything that was broken.
I used to get in trouble for taking apart things that were not broken just to see how they worked(including guns).
I can remember one time my dad came home early and found me stripping his Remington 30-06. He flipped out but his looked changed when I put it back together RIGHT!.
I was only 14 when I did this.
And I rebuilt my first car engine at the ripe old age of 14!
You gotta remember that the spell checker and grammar checker use spelling and grammar as defined by Bill Gates! English majors cringe at many of the "suggested" changes! Bill Gates will be the biggest influence as to what grammarians will define as "correct" because "correctness" is decided based on usage. English majors just hate that thought too!
So the words that spell check give me may not be spelled right?
Great how can you read what I am writing? (every other word I type is corrected by spell check).
Some are not spelled correctly. Sometimes the incorrect usage is suggested. And the grammar checker frequently breaks grammar rules, especially related to comma and semi-colon use.
However, all that said, it is still a very good tool for most of use. And in a few years, the rules it is currently breaking will be the accepted use. So there's a spit in the eye of Mr. Gates' favorite English teacher!
Separate names with a comma.
