How did you do this post? Because it is perfect.


I was able to write this post so well simply because I used my phone to create this thread, but here is the catch. My spelling isn't terrible while using a phone/computer simply because that's how I taught myself how to spell, and it's more of using muscle memory to spell out each word. But when it comes to writing things down on paper without the use of my phone, that's where I start having problems. My mind goes blank, and I get a little frustrated. Because I should know how to spell these things, but I simply can't remember how. The only way I remember most of the time outside of basic words is imagining typing the word out, but this only works with words I commonly use.

Now my spelling in general is still limited, so for words I don't know how to spell, I use the speech to text feature on my phone or while using my computer I use the auto-correct when I almost spell it correctly or I simply Google the word.

I'm sure based off these replies, I shouldn't have any problems. But I figured I would ask just to make sure. Since I have no real problems with reading, understanding instructions, etc. It really only comes down to spelling(on paper). Which I will be fine as long as I can use my phone at times, or I can simply think of how I would type it. It's pretty weird and frustrating at times, since I'm not a stupid person.

Can you compose it on your phone, then write it on paper?

Yeah, that's normally how I do it most of the time when filling out paper work. I just wasn't sure if it would be fine in this field of work, such as when I go to orientation, etc.
