On a slightly related note, I know an economics professor who has a disorder that prevents him typing/writing out things correctly (dyslexia, if I'm not wrong, but not sure). He does notice this after he typed/wrote it out. He uses Debian, and seeing him type out commands in the shell is just demonic: "taptaptaptaptap oh taptaptaptaptaptap wrong again taptaptaptaptap DAMN!", and so on.
I have dyslexia and astigmatism, plus Qwertial aphasia and it wasn't that bad when using Debian but, when handwritting for Spanish Literature things got really ugly, my prblem was mainly transcribing without glasses while talking to my mother about why I took Spanish Literature, a completely unrelated assignature to what I was studying. I needed to show a prescription for glasses and some proof I had dyslexia to be able to redo the project. (Transcribe the entire Cantar del Mío Cid)
Typing is a lot easier to correct, because I have learnt that proofreading is necesary before posting or printing or sending, my Msn conversation normally take very long.
This post took 10 minutes to be written and proofread.
Also, High school was hell for me because sometimes in math I wuold invert numbers and get weird results.

Also, when playing the piano for the school orchestra, when I was forced to read music things usually went awfully wrong.
Chopin is impossible to memorize and the left hand in Etude Revolutionary got pretty messed up. Never again did I played piano alone without an orchestra behind or infront of me.
