Hope this the right place for this question, but is it possible to have a spell check for the forums? My dyslexia continues to plague me and my spelling. Spell check is a good way for me to try to make corrections before I have to edit them. If not, I can still prep in Word and then paste in the forums.

Yes, I have a terrible time with lysdexia, too! I think it'd be handy.

Well, one thing you could do would be to get google toolbar from http://toolbar.google.com. It has a built in spell checker that you can use on any form on a webpage (ie the one you would type a reply into, for example).

It's amazing how many creative people have dyslexia, I hope it doesn't stop anyone from posting.

Not to interrupt the discussion on dyslexia but...

I find that comes in handy. I use it all the time. I'm amazed at how many words I spell wrong on a regular basis and am seriously curious about how many words I spelled wrong when I used Explorer.

The only thing with the fox is that when you go to watch movies you need the plugins. The correct plugins are not made anymore. So you have to still use Explorer for a few things here and there. :wink:
