    I am surprised that I can read it...

    I shouldn't feel bad about my poor spelling any more... As long as people can read it, what's the point to make it perfect?

    Neat, Bruce!

    I was reading up on different visual aids that guide those with reading disorders to make books more accessible, and they're doing amazing things! for many disabilities I never heard of...

    The example that I can remember is where the letters in each word decrease in font size, in very small increments. It's to aid a disorder where you forget what direction to read in. So you start with the bigger letters early in a word, and the print funnels you to the right, onto the next word. Really amazing research and techniques!

    Considering I have slight dyslexia... yup, no probs reading.

    (you ever hear about the dyslexic agnostic insomniac? He used to lay awake at night wondering if there really was a dog... )
