All Grown Up

Ooops, something's gone wrong on Planet Dom

Ah, the spellchecker. A godsend for millions of people, but not quite so user-friendly if you’re dyslexic. It has a nasty habit of changing words which can completely alter the tone and/or meaning of a text or email. One such clanger occurred when Michelle, our Berkshire Assistant Coordinator returned from maternity leave. Dom contacted our service provider to reinstate her email account:

Hi Mark, Michelle is returning from Maturity leave so I need to get her profile re-set up.

  1. My wife was diagnosed dyslexic at 44 when starting her degree. I ended up being her spellchecker for four years for precisely the reasons you describe!πŸ˜€


  2. Haha!
    Although my hubby’s not dyslexic, he does have a ‘way’ with words… for instance, ‘a murmuration of starlings’ became ‘a micturation of starlings’. So now, forever, I think of… well, you get my drift! πŸ˜‰
