Hello, my name is Matt Buttsworth. I have suffered from dyslexia and dysgraphia all my life and I know how difficult it can be to learn to read or to learn how to write legibly or to type without a thousand uncontrollable errors. I also know as a teacher and from my own at times bitter personal experience how difficult it can be to get effective help, and what terrible obstacles and terrible blows people suffering from dyslexia and dysgraphia can face .
But despite these disabilities, I have triumphed. I taught myself to read, to type using code systems and to use the latest voice dictation technology to help me create almost error free texts. Something I could never do at an earlier age when all I could do was write or type. And through hard work, perseverance and with the use of these techniques and computer programs I have been able to become a published author with a number of academic texts and novels available for sale on Amazon and to gain a PhD.
This book is about providing you with the practical skills and the latest available information on how to most effectively use the word processing programs and Dragon Naturally Speaking so that you too can beat dyslexia and dysgraphia.
I hope you find it of use.

Dr Matt Buttsworth
