I wish I had someone like you helping out with my college papers. After
I married, my wife helped some, but with her affected by Alzheimer's I
do not have any to help me with writing [i.e. grammar, etc.] my documents.

Between Dyslexia and the strokes, I lost much of the abilities I had.

So thanks Marc for finding the grammar, and other writing, issues with
the paperwork Drew and other are working on for LibreOffice Marketing.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, but most of my comments are just that and Drew and others are free to comment differently as well. We all get to offer our opinions on the text.



For me, it got to the point that I had to use text-to-speech systems to read my papers "back to me" to figure out if the words sounded correct. Dyslexia blocked my ability to see the words problems, and cause issues getting the proper words out or causes grief over spelling the needed words to the point I have to choose other words instead. I leave words out, put them in the wrong order, spell the words wrong but they are correctly spelled words so the checkers pass the by. I was over 30 before my reading skills was in the high school level, even though I graduated with good marks from high school and my first college degree with honors. I learned to compensate, with memory and in class discussions, for the lack of reading skills for the course text work. I was the first student at that college to be asked to join PTK [honor society that require 3.5 GPA or better] who had a learning disability.

So with all those troubles that increased after the 2nd and 3rd strokes, it can be very hard for me to get down in print, or "word of mouth", the things I want to say in the way I want/need to say it. It is easier to type, most times, than speak. That is why I did not want to talk to drew over the phone when he wanted me to a few months back. It is too hard for me to talk over the phone. Typing I can type and edit as much as I want before I press send. One of my doctors told me that my brain and mouth were working a different "speeds" so it was hard for them to keep in sync.


Actually - LibreOffice spell checking issue

Have you seen on the DEB 64-bit LibreOffice that the spelling pop-up used the OOo seagull image instead of the LO image [if there is one]? I was wondering when I say that; when to that happen since I do not remember that image in the earlier version of LibreOffice.

I do not use LO's spell checking much, since most of my text work is in Thunderbird. So when I saw that image of the OOo seagulls it seems strange that LO would use OOo's images internally.
