I have had a disablity all my life called Dislexisa. When I was in school they did not have special programs in school to help student like me. So it was very hard for me to learn how to spell and learn proper grammer specially when the number, letters and symbols would get mix up and come back wrong. anyway My daughters also have the disablity but they were able get help with it. because they have a program that is called Special Ed.

I have a collage reading leval and I have finish schools for business, accounting and am a certifed graphic designes. It doesn't mean you are dumb because you can not spell!!!!

If you would like to use Mozilla Firefox as your browser, it comes with a spell checker.

It's not perfect, but is sure helps. When you misspell a word, it will be underlined in red and you can right click on the word for suggested correct spelling.

Hope this helps.

I agree, it doesn't mean you are dumb. That said however, with your education level you should be pretty proficient at utilizing a spelling/grammar check program.......

I agree with the OP and all my previous post on the subject support my belief. I focus on the abilty to communicate and share ideas and perspectives. I'm not zeroing in on grammar, phonics, format, subject/verb agreement; any of that. As long as we share thoughts, concerns, and feelings...it's all good.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, people that have near perfect grammar and can post messages like an English Professor are not always the most brillant or they lack common sense or desirable personalities. All the proper Language Arts in the world can't change that.

To me it's just not a standard I use to evaluate a person.

People take for granted that English is the hardest language in the world to learn. As a GTA at Auburn U in English I graded Freshmen composition. It's amazing the lack of spelling ability by some of the students in the class. They weren't in any way ignorant. They just couldn't spell. They could form very coherent thoughts on paper but simple words weren't spelled correctly. The medical field has several disorders that contribute to learning or lack of ability to learn. I recently saw that there is a new disorder called ADHD to go along with dyslexia,ADD, and hyper learning disorders. You're not alone and you're not ignorant. You can type! Good luck!

I'm a teacher, both English and Spanish, and while I might mark up a student's paper for spelling incorrectly, I'm certainly not going to spend my time in here correcting spelling and/or grammar...

As long as I can get a relatively clear idea of what someone's saying, that's good enough for me. It's heart and character and wit that matter the most to me. I like the free exchange of ideas, and I would hate to think that someone felt stifled and was reluctant to post a thought because of spelling.

I agree the ability to spell does not indicate intelligence, however spell check is available, use it and you won't have a problem.

wow.. you just wrote my life... for me add that to ADD, and you have my childhood...
i could not read or write till 5th grade in school... When i was young they put me in the special class... i would sit there look at all the children with sever disabilities and thought, i will always be dumb... but, something just clicked in the 5th grade...
(they passed me, cause my parents moved twice a year, and each school did not know what to do with me) i learned my self by hands on... i would trace every thing... my hands on street signs i would climb up the poles, and trace the letters over and over to learn the word SCHOOL... it was like training my brain to think backwards....

I am still dyslexic, but knowing this has helped me get a grip on my young self esteem, i didn't even know the name until i hit the 11th grade in high school. Still terrible in word problems in math, directions...

but thank goodness, i can almost memorize anything.. i only retain about 40% of it after 1 year.. but temporarily i can memorize enough to pass college. But chemistry still is very difficult for me...

Just don't ask me for directions!!!

I don't believe spelling indicates intelligence, but the effort to proof read says a lot. If you are unsure and know there is an issue with your spelling, use spell check or a dictionary.

I also believe it can sometimes hinder communication. Or maybe I'm just lazy and don't want to take the time to decipher what's been written. (Such as posts without any punctuation.)

Also, there's nothing wrong with ignorance. It just indicates "a lack of knowledge". And we can all use a bit of knowledge. I know I can. But don't sweat it.

You are not stupid by any means. You have dyslexia and that is not your fault. I am the one that is stupid! I have THE worst time knowing when to start a new paragraph or put commas,colons etc. where they go. I have always been that way!

General Discussion: Why do people think because you can't spell that you are ignorent.

For the same reason that they think that if you can't drive you are also. People have a tendency to criticise others in order to mask their own shortcommings.

A misspelled word on occasion doesn't necessarily indicate ignorance, but what tends to happen here is that many totally massacre the language. Being foreign born and raised, I have always strived to perfect my english. It is a difficult language to learn and, unfortunately, you are judged by your ability to communicate.

As stated previously, most of it has to do with going back and reading what we have written before posting.

Whasup is not esakly the best way to introdeuse urself.

I notice that OP hasn't bothered to come back in and comment on the posts.

Don't feel bad Einstien was a poor student, mostly ADD of some sort, had most of his papers ghost written, I understand. He also wasn't that great at math(hard to believe) He was theorist. I've had spell check foul up my computors, maybe the programs I have to run cause the issue IDK

When I look at a person's profile, I don't expect perfect spelling and grammar, but if the words are so horrible and it’s practically incoherent, then I'll pass them by. It’s not too hard to spell-check. On a dating site, you are trying to impress someone. Similarly, I have received resumes where they could not even spell their employer's name (MacDonds, anyone?) To me it’s just being kind of lazy.

I've broken off communication with women who's spelling and grammar were atrocious. But, I've always asked if it was because of some disability before rendering a final judgment. (The disability I might be able to overlook.)

Poor spelling and grammar, while not necessarily indicative of intelligence or ignorance, can be indicators of sloth (laziness).

Like others have noted: "spell check is your friend".

My spelling always has been horrible. But, you don't see too many errors in my posts, do you? I'll even go back and fix mistakes (spelling, grammar, typos, etc.) when I notice them. It's just showing respect for your reading audience.

Are you getting shot down by people you wanted to impress? Did they tell you it is specifically because you misspell things? If so, you can change that. I accessed this via computer and it has tools to make up for my own personal failings in language. If you want to be more impressive, use them. If you are IMing and typing top speed because someone interests/excites you, and they are too dumb to catch on that you go faster than you would if you stopped to pretty up your typing, it probably isn't your loss if they move on. Most of getting into the relationships with people here are about impressions---so you can either use your options to make the most of your impressions, or not. Either way, it WILL make an impression. Just be sure it's the one you want to make!

How one articulates indeed makes a huge difference in how they are percieved. Everybody makes mistakes. Taking the time to prevent or fix them says a lot about the credibility of the individual. This is precisely why people hire graphic designers (such as yourself) and Public Relations firms and Advertisement agencies when they are unable to successfully relay what they want to say.

You'd be SURPRISED how many tattooed quotes and names are mis-spelled. I ALWAYS check...then double check...then ask the client to make sure that it is exactly the way they want it spelled.
Like I said...everyone makes mistakes, and in casual conversation, simply getting the point across is often "good enough"...but it is not wise to become lazy, as a rule. You WILL be judged because of it!

Judging by your post, you are fine. Just wait till you run across one of the absolutely hideous postings by one or two people here and you'll see just how bad it can really be.

No one's perfect, of course, but some obviously just don't care and don't even seem to be making an effort. It's the apparent laziness that gets under my skin.



P.S. Everyone else posting in this thread is fine IMHO, dyslexia or not. You'll know a truly bad one when you see it.

I dont think s/o is dumb if they cant spell or use proper grammar...my motto is EVERYONE is smart in something...meaning it could be english is your strong point or math, any number of things...thats why ppl go to college and there r so many versatile occupations to pick from. and even if u didnt go to college doesnt mean u r dumb. everyone has their niche' in the world and has something to offer.

now w/that being said, i do think such as in a place like this where u have to type a lot to obviously get your point across, u must possess some type of english skills and grammar for ppl to at least understand u. i personally have read some ppl's threads and postings that r so out of whack cuz u simply just cant understand it. so at the least ppl have to write in a way even if they r spelling-impairedso the audience can read it. cuz if not, then all they will get is frustration when ppl wont respond to them accordingly to the way its being presented!

no, we all arent perfect!

Perfect spelling and grammer would be wonderful and an ideal concept (yeh, I know I don't have it). It would also be wonderful if everyone had a perfect understanding of higher math, sciences and physics.

It comes down to that we are never totally perfect in everything and all different in our own ways.

I don't know but misspelling doesn't bother me. All CAPS BOTHERS ME. IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE THEY'RE YELLING RATHER THAN TALKING.

I don't think anyone is stupid. I see intelligence in everybody, including Jessica Simpson. I defintiely would never judge someone based off of thigns such as this.

Maybe because many, many people who can't spell don't have a disability and really are ignorant. But some people have a disability and others never had the opportunity to learn in their formative years. So until you say, 'Hey, I have dyslexia.', yes, people will assume that, and that's not going to change.

Somewhat off topic:

Somebody name a poster on DH that you consider to be intelligent and is an atrocious speller, please. I would like to see what others consider to be 'intelligent' and what others consider to be 'atrocious spelling'.

For the all or nothing thinkers: Stop saying that it's about perfection. Unless you can point me to a post where someone demands perfection. Please.


Edit: I misspelled 'atrocious'.

Quote from mae_west:
I have had a disablity all my life called Dislexisa. When I was in school they did not have special programs in school to help student like me. So it was very hard for me to learn how to spell and learn proper grammer specially when the number, letters and symbols would get mix up and come back wrong. anyway My daughters also have the disablity but they were able get help with it. because they have a program that is called Special Ed.

I have a collage reading leval and I have finish schools for business, accounting and am a certifed graphic designes. It doesn't mean you are dumb because you can not spell!!!!


It certainly portrays a lazy attitude, especially if they are very common words. I dont get "slang", nor do i think very highly of people who use it on an everday basis. You look illiterate, if you're not willing to learn how to spell common words, how can you do anything else?

you should be happy that there is such a thing as a spell check. when anyone miss spelled a word in class the entire class had to stop while the teacher made the student that miss spelled the word get out the dictionary and look it up. not only did you have to look it up in front of everyone you had to spell give the parts of speech and the definition. this class wasn't a high school class. it was a college level work. after a few people went through that they learned to pay attention to their spelling. me included. i use a spell check every time i write anything. and i still use a dictionary. good luck. and no your not ignorant.
