Computer Spellcheckers and Dyslexics--A Performance Survey.
Pedler, Jennifer
British Journal of Educational Technology, v32 n1 p23-37 Jan 2001
Presents the results of running four spellcheckers over samples of text containing the types of spelling errors made by dyslexics. Describes the ways in which they differ from more conventional misspellings that spellcheckers are designed to deal with and concludes that spellcheckers need to use syntactic and contextual information to improve performance.
