Please add my thanks to your thoughtful treatment of disabilities. I have always lauded Blizzard for making a game that I can play. I'm a wee bit older, 61, so my eyesight is losing acuity. I flunked the eye test in first grade, so you can imagine how bad it has gotten now, lol. Even wearing trifocals, with normal computer use, I'm leaning forward to see the screen to be able to read most text, but I can sit back to play WoW and the clean graphics lets me see just what I need. I do tend to get lost in dungeons, it has become a guild running joke.I also have an Essential Tremor, which makes my hands shake rapidly. Unwanted mouse clicks have me casting spells when I wanted to be fishing, at times. Still, I find I can heal with ease, and look forward to getting my Holy Priest geared up for heroics at least. I healed ICC in the past, but I think things have progressed to the state that I may not raid again. Even so, I'll be happy to run heroics. Deathwing, count yourself lucky...My son has dyslexia and dysgraphia. His reading has gotten a lot better, so now he can read the quest text in a reasonable time, but typing into chat windows sometimes becomes a session of me spelling every third word for him. Has anyone tried using Dragon Naturally Speaking with WoW? It advertises that it will dictate into the chat window, but my experiences with earlier versions was that it was not accurate enough and you had to speak in an uncomfortable style. Anyone tried the latest version? I would appreciate some feedback on it, thanks.

For spelling I use an addon called Misspelled. It highlights incorrect words in mage-blue and lets you right-click on the word to select the correct spelling. The dictionary it has isn't always great though, and it's still no help with muddling up letters. Example: I'm always having to double-check if I've just typed "definitely" or "defiantly"!
