    "alonebfg" try not to leave the forum and keep your chin up and good luck with work.

    Ps It took me about 1 hour to write this.
    Do you have Office 2003? If so, it has speech recognition built in. It's not perfect but it's not bad and it's certainly worth trying. I'm not sure how much help it will be - someone earlier used the witch/which example and speech recognition won't help there.

    Ultimately, we just need people to recognise that dyslexics are not stupid or lazy and to accept that a few mis-spellings aren't really going to bring the world to an end!!

    That is all it's doing, I didn't know what would make the site more readable for you. My understanding of Irlens (although I may very easily be wrong, so feel free to correct me if I am) was that it affects everyone in slightly different ways. If you can let me know what would make the site more easily readable for you, I'll have a stab at modifying the script to suit, although I don't claim to be good with UI's or colour schemes

    yes it is but it did not make all the writing bigger only frount ent of the site also with me it is colour related. ie you google page to me looks good and is easyer to read. ie light on dark is better than dark on white for me. everone is not the sane but for me it stops the words from moving. hence when using word i have yellow on black but when printed it still comes out black on white paper. for instance your sig looks good but for me it easy to read and if the red was darker it would be even better.
    http://www.irlencentralengland.co.uk/symp&dis.html look at the bottom of this page. i see the rivers version

        style.innerHTML = css;
        head.appendChild(style);
    }
    
    addGlobalStyle(newCSS);
    Are either of these any use?
    If not, what would be better?

    I've also included my modified version of Google Dark Extended (renamed to .vbs as the forum doesn't like .js [or even .txt] >_< )

    You could always try:

    Go to Tools --> options. Select the content tab. Click on Colours in the "fonts and colours" panel.

    Select your ideal text colour and background colour, also adjust the unvisited / visited links colours as required. Untick "Allow pages to choose their own colours, instead of my selections above". Click ok, ok. Refresh page. Edugeek is now available in whatever psychedelic colours you want it.

    Hope this helps.......
