Hi Guys,
I'm dyslexic and have started listing my contacts like this...

JoHN DiCKSoN

Everything in capitals except vowels, which are done in lower case.

For me this stops everything bleeding into one "Lump" as I'm looking at my contact list.

This really has helped me and I hope that others find this useful.

If you know someone who is dyslexic then please pass this on.

Thanks for reading my post Smiley Happy

that's a great idea, I have asked a few people to try this out. I know at work we have to put signs up that are clear to everyone and certain colours and backgrounds help dyslexic people read the sign instantly. it took ages to test various things out.
