The organisation of work is key to aiding dyslexia. Do you use Google Calendars apps such as booost and global tasks or prefer a diary to keep track of your projects and work? There is also other software such as Trello to colour code and aid you organise your work.

Text to speech: This enables a dyslexic person to listen to their work. This enables them to hear where they have made mistakes, you can find this in Word under review with read-aloud. There are also packages such as Claro Read which I use to check my work. Immersive reader is also a great aid found under view as this will help give coloured backgrounds, aid with how you prefer your work to be set out and use text-to-speech software.

Speech-to-text: is also built into Word documents and is the microphone symbol. There is also Dragon dictation and for Apple Macintosh there is talk type. This reduces the amount of stress and anxiety about spelling as you are talking to the computer.

Mind mapping: there are dyslexics who do not like mind mapping. However, it is a useful tool for dumping ideas and being able to visualise helping organise thoughts for projects and studies in education and the workplace.
