    A couple resources for bad spellers and dyslexics

    Hey all!
    After struggling to read a couple posts due to run on sentences, spelling, etc, I decided to post a couple little tricks I use to try make sure my posts are understandable even though I don't type well, and am a touch dyslexic.

    My first line of defense against atrocious spelling is a little editor for Windows called tinyspell: TinySpell - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

    For Linux I use Firefox with: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9207

    And finally, a tip: Sometimes I'll open my word processor (mine happens to be Open Office. You could just as easily use Word) and type my post there. This will highlight spelling, some run on sentences and makes me slow down and review.

    None of this will help much with grammar, but it will at least help enough to clean up a post a bit, so it won't get ignored.

    Happy posting!

    You're doing yeoman's work here, sir.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I think we would need a "crap to English" translator for that my friend. That type of "writing", I usually have to ignore for my own sanity.

    "My Spell Checker Works Grate!

    Eye halve a spelling chequer
    It came with my pea sea.
    It plainly marques four my revue
    Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

    Eye strike a key and type a word
    And weight four it two say
    Weather eye am wrong oar write;
    It shows me strait a weigh.

    As soon as a mist ache is maid,
    It nose bee fore two long,
    And eye can put the error rite;
    Its rare lea ever wrong.

    Eye have run this poem threw it;
    I am shore your pleased two no.
    Its letter perfect awl the weigh;
    My chequer tolled me sew."

    Nice post! And never forget the dyslexic preacher, that gave a sermon on "Is There Really a Dog"

    If you think this is bad, you should read what my nephew posts on Facebook when he's drunk...

    It was actually the dyslexic, agnostic insomniac who stayed awake all night wondering if there really was a dog.

    I second the Firefox add-on. It works great! Windows or Linux!
