    I like "when" better than "if".    "If" implies some of them never even try to read.    

    People who reverse the letters of words when trying to read suffer from dyslexia.  

    However, I don't think you need to indicate trying to read.   

    This is good enough in my opinion.

    If you want to include "trying" to emphasize that it is hard for them.  It is 

    okay.

    I seen the article on one study  which  indicates that dyslexic people 

    have trouble understanding speech also, but see nowhere indicating

    that because of that  they now  know that they have no problem readings..     https://www.cbsnews.com/news/dyslexia-a-hearing-pr...

    neither is correct.  dyslexia is caused by a hearing problem, not by reversing letters.  no one misreads respond as repsond, for example
