Watching Brad and Jeffs faces scrunch up at the same time when Dan completely whiffs it on pronouncing "Les enfants terribles" is the most beautiful thing I've seen all week.

Seriously, someone just hand Dan an Ayumi Hamasaki album and tell him its the unreleased Gitaroo Man 2 soundtrack.

@gunslingernz: You have hit core of problem is that people often choice easy option of judgement rather then help provide work environment that offers software and dictation to help people with dyslexia be more efficient.

But the idea that its ok then to cast aversion to group of people who on average are in higher tier of intelligence as being dumb and useless is still wrong.

most people with dyslexia know they have problem and work hard to find ways to try and adapt and better themselves. I personally don't think its too much to ask that other people adapt there attitudes towards the condition.

As for work environments, please put yourself in management's shoes and honestly ask yourself if it's preferable to have an employee who needs training and/or needs their work proofread, or one who can already interact well with colleagues and clients without requiring assistance. It is absolutely about efficiency, since you brought that up. Most companies have to focus on maximizing collective efficiency, not maximizing your efficiency. On your end, it's fair to expect some understanding (as we all have our strengths and weaknesses), but it might be a bit much to expect others to spend their time and/or money helping you manage one of your weaknesses. Asking other people to adapt their work environments/attitudes/behavior to make things easier on you is generally received very poorly.

Well, discriminating against a person with dyslexia within the context of a hiring decision is kinda illegal, so whether or not it inconveniences or costs a company more is irrelevant.
