Astigmatism is the most common vision problem. Sometimes astigmatism may accompany nearsightedness or far-sightedness. It's caused by an irregularly shaped cornea. A person may have blurred vision which causes headaches or eyestrain. As a result a person with stigmatism has lot of problems reading/writing static text. A person under this condition is force to read/white and be as productive as a person with normal vision. Computers do not offer a solution to a person that has astigmatism. A person with astigmatism can see moving objects better then a person without stigmatism therefore can absorb and correct information if the objects are moving. If the operating systems offer a way to store words that are confuse or close in spelling (ex: car vs cur the two words are correct in English but have different meanings) then as the person types any of this words in a operating system the words can start moving up, down, left, write, etc. A person with astigmatism can see and correct the spelling of the words a lot faster if they are moving.

Moving objects/text for spelling corrections

The idea is to have a database in the operating system (similar to a dictionary) that will allow a person to store words (by typing or importing them with a click of the mouse) If the person is typing or highlights any of words in the database the word will move (up, down, right or left). This will help a person with astigmatism to clearly see, understand and correct any errors.

1. The operating systems comes with a database
2. A user can enter words to the database by typing or importing them with a click of the mouse
3. A user types one of the words in the database.
4. The word moves up and down or left and right (pending of how the users likes and how fast it likes)
5. The person is able to make corrections if he/she meant a different meaning (ex:car vs cur.) A spell check would not be able to highlight this information because the two words are part of the English vocabulary.
