Technology moves so fast and for people with dyslexia, it can be even harder to keep up. As part of our Me, Myself and IT mini documentary series, made with City College Brighton, this two minute video sees dyslexic film student Hugo Hobs talk us through his favourite tech for managing modern student life.
My top tech for dyslexia
- Speech-to-text on Google Docs in Google Drive has been one of the biggest aids in putting my thoughts and ideas down on the page.
How I do my assignments
- Grammarly has really helped. It goes through your work and sorts out spelling and grammar and other words that might need to change.
- Then I go through Thesaurus.com to add better words. This gives me a higher score and gets me to the level my colleagues are at.
Voice recording to remember details
- I use an app on my phone called Google Keep to record meetings with other colleagues, or chats with the teacher about a deadline, for example.
- The recording syncs up with Google Drive so I can access the recordings on my laptop to make things easier.
Me, Myself and IT is a series of films about how disabled students use tech to get through college, made by students at City College Brighton.
