Interesting! I think I have that problem to some degree - possibly not as pronounced! That's why I also have a lot of errors in my typing - but since I have no one to proofread, and am too lazy to do it myself, my Blogit posts are usually full of errors. And I'm also a lousy typist to boot...

I do speed but not the reading

sometimes makes me see different letters entirely.  Like, Steve's nametag at work changes to Complete Prick.

I also learned speed reading in college, and use it at times now, and yes, I do have to work to catch sone typos.

Well

I feel better now.....I did speed reading in college a lot......it apparently is appealing to my clients....it like they have a contest to see who can catch my mistakes first and then call me on it.....

Well I am dyslexic i have to check all words longer than that one but I have two dictionaries on the net and several dictionaries at hand. The good news I can usually see if a word is wrong or a US spelling which is used here. That is really tough on you.

I can speed read... but I also spot typos immediately... this is just as much a curse as it is a skill.  No one wants to be the spelling police.  I've gotten better at ignoring it as texting and autocorrect uses a whole new language.

I have that tendency as well. For me, it works out better to print things out. I tend to notice the errors I make better that way.

I do not do that for my blog entries. It is post and go for me.

my problem too. I learned to speed read years ago when I was working and always taking another course at University which is basically reading the first and last letters. learning to skip all meaningless description and taking in what will be needed in the exams and added to an assignment. trouble is now I don't always put onto paper what I see in my head.
