    I feel it too; finals week at our University!

    • So much writing! It’s the proofreading that’s killing me though. My Irlen Syndrome is really proving to be an issue! My eyes have never hurt so much with the strain.

      • Teaching-Annie

        Many years ago, I obtained a software program called “Read Please” and it reads the text back to me. I can pause it, and make corrections as I listen. As a free-lance writer, this reader program allowed me to meet those deadlines.

      • I have Claroread, but still finding it hard being in front of a screen for so long just looking at text.
