aint nothing wrong with having Dyslexia, i mean i dont have it but its a pretty messed up if someone talks crap on somebody because of something they were born with, and its really stupid if u had ur grades getting screwed over because of it, i could read all that maybe not like normal but still breezed through it with no prob, so i think ur spelling is fine. but this is the internet so there will be flamers...sorry if this post is irrelevant but i had to say something. Peace

Awh, nobody should make fun of anybody. You seem like a nice person, and in this world where life is so short, that is all that matters.

There's nothing wrong with having a fault, I have more than my share. But if you're willing to take some advice from someone over a decade older, might I suggest finding some way to compensate for your weakness?

For example, I find the original post to be very hard to read. Some of it is homonyms (words that sound the same but are written differently and mean different things) but some of it is being lazy. Go back and re-read the original post, the "text message" short hand of "u" is used to express the proper word "you". This is isn't explained by dyslexia, it is a lack of effort by the author.

As for the homonym problem, there are plenty of speech to text programs out there that can help you out. Or look up each word in the dictionary. Make sure you're saying what you mean to say when you're unsure. Find what you need to overcome your weakness or it will continue to hinder your life. That may be a friend who reviews your written work or reliance on spell check/grammar check. Most people I know are willing to help a person out if they are actually trying to improve. That said if instead you're just taking advantage of their kindness, well they are less forgiving of that.

Please note, I did not say that the author of the original post was stupid. As a point of fact, I encourage you to post more, and improve. That is, frankly, the smartest thing you can do. That said, please take the time to write things out completely and try to understand the difference in written word choice. When spell check pops up, look up each word and figure out which one best matches what you're trying to say. Take the extra time and it will get easier. There is an entire world out there dying to hear what you have to say; however, if they are spending time decoding your posts then they aren't spending time understanding your message and point of view.

Edit:
Changed OP to original post. I was being lazy as well. As I said at the start, I have my share of faults as well. Admitting to them is not one of them.

My sister and I both have mild dyslexia. However, I feel we both overcame it with a lot of hard work and brain exercises. Our parents were very proactive and worked with both of us. Our schools gave extra assignments, sent us to speech therapists, and worked with us one-on-one when necessary.
My sister still hates to read, and her writing skills are still horrible (she is 32 and her writing looks like she is in third grade), but she went to college (had to take calculus twice, unfortunately) and is now classified as a senior scientist at a pharmaceutical company (she majored in Biotechnological engineering). She has always been an extrovert though and never let anything or anyone get her down. She is a social butterfly unlike me.

My dyslexia becomes more apparent in my speech. It is sometimes hard for me to process what I want to say. Simple words evade me, and I stutter or say the opposite of what I was thinking. My husband gets aggravated sometimes because he has to ask me a question twice before I can figure out my answer, eventhough it is on the tip of my tongue.
However my reading and writing skills are not usually affected. I do mistype sometimes, inverting words or letters. My eyes skip when reading - the more tired I am the worse it gets. I do find I lose my place quite a bit, but I became a speed reader out of necessity (because I had to keep going back to the sentence above the one I was on) - my reading comprehension was above that of everyone else in class (because I read everything twice, LOL!).
In fact, I now proofread for my employer. I love reading and writing. I am an introvert though - I don't like speaking in front of people and get distracted, fidgety and lose my train of thought easily. I also tend to use too many pronouns and sometimes others can't follow my meaning, but it is as clear as a bell to me.

Anyways, it takes a ton of hard work, but anything is possible. Good luck to you OP and don't let anyone talk you out of what you want to achieve.

Don't worry. Teachers thought I had ADHD,dyslexia,short memory and speech disorder(English is my second language/I pronounce things wrong a lot when I started to talk carelessly). During my years after elementary, teachers really hated me because I never tried hard always slack off. Teacher gave me all those tested and I didn't pass any of them. Afterwards, they hired this special teacher that sees me few times a week. I was pretty dumb to screw up my education during elementary. The main reason is probably because I was spoiled. I had my parents to do my homework for me, go on computer 24/7 and also socialize ALOT in school. Maturity hit me hard when I went to highschool, that's when I start ACTUALLY caring about my grades and what I'm going to do in the future. So far this term, I got few As few Bs and one C which is a high average for students in my school. I find that many kids DON't TRY in school and they eventually fall behind. Some of my classmates have "dyslexia" just like you but they BOMB their school subjects really badly. I empathize them and teach them how to do it.. Maturity plays a very important role in life. Once you obtained it, you WILL FIND LEARNING VERY EASY. After going through puberty, my mind pretty much change. My thoughts and emotions changed from a boy to a man. I hate it when people find me different from others. I was pretty much a test subject until the 2nd year of highschool, the teachers let me go back to regular classes. Don't worry, you'll get through it like it's a walk in a park. Try to adapt to the environment, if you can't remember things, try to play piano. It helps ALOT!


TL:DR?Read the spoilers

Microsoft has a basic speech recognition software. It comes with the OS of both Vista and 7 as far as I know. I've used it to play video games a few times, not very well however. You just dictate text and its usually right.

You can likely find it in Start > All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access > Windows Speech Recognition
Alternatively Search > "Windows Speech" and it should pop up as an option

Dyslexia is a gift not really a hindrance I have a mild case, my dad and brother have more serious cases. My dad suffered extensively early in his life because of it, although he's very mechanically gifted partly to that.

That happens to me a lot. Speech is something I really need to think about before I talk. Having a mild accent, deep voice with some stutter will hurt. People thought I was special because I talk carelessly around my friends. Reading was a big issue to me, it was probably because English was my second language. Sometimes it takes time for my brain to process to words before I understand what I mean. I dropped my first language a long time and now, I'm learning Chinese and English at the same time.
