As a dsypraxic, my handwriting is less than steller, so I have to type everything in order to produce legible wording on paper. However, even though i'm fairly good at typing (I don't type like normal people do, I don't have the dexterity for that. Instead, I developed my own style which is an extremely fast variant of the hunt-and-peck system using both hands).
In my classes, a lot of my professors talk really fast during lectures and I simply can't keep up even on my laptop. Often, I miss entire concepts as I was typing out the previous one.
I came to a realization: Since I have a laptop with speakers, why not record everything?
I use the free open-source sound recording program Audacity
(I use the Linux version, but there is a verson for Windows XP that is identical-- it also has a lot of nice tools that allow you to boost the volume of a recording if it's not loud enough, etc. ) and a plug-in microphone to record the professor as he/she is talking. The computer does all the work and I just sit back and relax. After the lecture, I compress the recording to a mp3 file, and then play it while I'm working on something else.
I would suspect that most of us have laptops anyway, so give this a try, it might help you like it did for me. It helps to tell your professors that you're dyspraxic, that way they probably won't mind being recorded.
