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.

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.
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.
