Dyslexia

I know there are at least three regular dyslexics here, but I thought I'd post this in public to give you a helping hand...

Download firefox from here:
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/

Then install the British dictionary:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...9-fx+zm+tb.xpi

Now, when writing a post or a wiki article, you will get a red underline under any misspelt word. Simply right click the word and choose the correct one.

As a bonus you will have Firefox, which displays web pages almost correctly (as opposed to Internet Explorer 6 or 7, which is a total mess).

Hope this helps you guys.

PS - please try and use this thread constructively, and avoid the usual dyslexic gags.

Also the Google toolbar incorporates a web page spell checker.

The problem is that you have to remember to go back up to the top of the page, press a button, come all the way back down and look at oddly coloured words.

The Firefox one just does that underline thing as you type.
