What's it like to have Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is such a common condition, affecting about ten per cent of the population, but being able to describe it's effects to people who don't have dyslexia is truly difficult.

How do you explain to someone who can not only read and write with relative ease, what it is like to not be able to do that and about how a dyslexic learner's life is affected across many aspects, not just schooling?

A software developer, Victor Widell was intrigued to learn more about his friend's condition and has come up with a great way to illustrate how a dyslexic can be affected when reading.

It is by no means the full story but it gives indication of what it could be like.
