I don’t know if it’s my allergies or something else, but my sinuses have been doing a number on me today, and it’s really messing with my dyslexia today.
Words aren’t showing up properly, and they’re being just as coy when I try writing. The most annoying thing that’s been happening involves this:
|Save. I can save. C’mon, brain.|
Buttons, man. Buttons.
Today, I replied to a couple of comments, and I’m a little surprised that it worked. The first time, I accidentally logged out completely. The second time, I almost did it again, but I managed to hit “reply”. The second comment almost got canceled instead of posted.
Of course, that’s not the only place I run into that trouble. As pictured above, saving documents gets challenging, even when the “Save” button is lit up.
|You’d think that “reblog” button was obvious enough.|
Microblogging sites, like tumblr, pose the same problem. If there’s a second or third option, you could bet I chose the one I don’t want.
Even when formatted in the generic save/post/submit on the left and cancel on the right, I still get confused. I end up feeling petty foolish and frustrated as a result.
On a somewhat related note, one of the comments I came across today was from a masters student at at Teachers College, Columbia University, Elizabeth Geiger. She’s in the Counseling Psychology program, and is carrying out a research study about the life experiences of students diagnosed with learning disabilities.
All that’s involved is filling out a 20 minute survey, but to take part, you must meet the following criteria:
- Over 18
- Currently in school
- Live in the USA
- Diagnosed with a learning disability/difference
I’m not in school at the moment, though that may change in the next year or two, so I don’t qualify. However, if you’re interested, please click here for the survey and more information on the study.
Feel free to pass this info along to others who may be qualified to participate.
