About this site
This website was created as part of my Master's thesis in Digital Media at NUI, Galway. I wanted to create an application that would teach spelling rules in a way that is simple and accessible for dyslexic people, without being too academic or childish.
The project could not have been completed without the help of several people: Fiona Concannon, my wonderful supervisor, who went way beyond the call of duty in helping me out at every stage of the project development; Colm Donnelly, for being the voice of spellingrules.ie; my sister Ciara, for proofreading the written part of the project; Niall and Josephine Gannon, for giving me the initial idea for the project, and for all their advice, and Doreen Friel, for helping me organise pilot testing.
The application is sponsored by STAR Translation Services. STAR has a keen interest in the English language and its development. As Paul Quigley, one of the company directors, is dyslexic, the concept sparked their interest and they decided to collaborate in sponsoring the developing and helping to promote the site.
