Who knew your phone’s personal assistant does not just know how to order you pizza, but can also spell words out for you! Just trigger your phone’s particular assistant and ask it to “spell [word]” and it will spell the word you want, spoken letter by letter, out loud.
“Hey Siri, how do you spell haberdashery?”
Siri’s reply: “haberdashery h-a-b-e-r-d-a-s-h-e-r-y”
Also, you can use the phones voice recognition when texting to add the word in you just cannot spell.

Episode 80 – 40 years of living with Dyslexia with Matthew Head

In this episode, I share my journey from an 18-year-old college student in 2002, riding a Honda CB400 Super 4 and studying Automotive Engineering, to achieving my dream career despite dyslexia. Ignoring career advisors’ push for university, I focused on my College course. Starting as a mechanic for Volvo, I soon sought more. A dream job testing engines required an Engineering Degree, leading to struggles with Imposter Syndrome. Yet, I completed my degree as a mature student, joining a graduate scheme at 30. Despite dyslexia, which I only began discussing in my 30s, I persevered with grit and determination. This episode delves into my challenges and successes with dyslexia, education, and career aspirations.
