How about adding a grammar checker? For a lot of folks with dyslexia,
the grammar checker is as important as the spell checker. It surfaces a
variety of perception errors, such as repeated words (e.g. "the the"),
omitted words (e.g. "the" is missing all together), and noun/verb
agreement (e.g. plural noun with a singular verb and vis versa). Many
people with dyslexia do not perceive those sorts of errors.
