Ghotit for Children with Dyslexia

GHOTIT CAN HELP KIDS WITH DYSLEXIA, DYSGRAPHIA SPELLING
Dyslexia Spelling = Phonetic Spelling + Creative Spelling

 What is Phonetic Spelling?

When you’re dictating a word and tell your son or daughter that he should write what he hears, your child will attempt to map the sounds in the words to the sounds of the letters.
However, English is not a phonetic language. There are a very large number of English words where there is a gap between how the word sounds and how the word is actually spelled. Not to mention, there are many times multiple correct phonetic options to a given sound (for example: k , c, ck, and qu – all sound about the same)…

What is creative spelling?

Given that English spelling is not phonetic, and each sound may have several spelling options, a lot of correct English spelling is dependent on the visual memory of a written word. If you have good visual memory of words, you will be able to spell a word correctly simply by writing it down, and from memory deciding if this is the correct spelling.
But kids with dyslexia and dysgraphia have very poor and inconsistent visual memory of spelled words, and therefore, can hardly rely on their visual memory of words…. Not to mention that children with dyslexia or dysgraphia sometimes confuse the direction of letters, and though they meant to write the letter “b” actually end up writing the letter “d”…
A child’s Creative Spelling refers to the spelling of a child that has no idea of how to spell correctly certain syllables of a word, and therefore, creatively makes them up as he writes. And each time he/she “creates” a word’s spelling, it usually ends up as a different spelling creation.

Can a regular spell checker correct dyslexia spelling?

I put my foot dawn in froow the door. I was cold but my foot was licker it was summer. it was so I stept in. I sore butterflies in the grader I did not under stand it was winter at home bet it was sumer at the fared.I notest it was time for school. So I ran awte. So that I wood not be late wen I got to school I told my friends abate the garden. At the end fo school I went and shode them it thaye were ameramasd at it so very day we plaid there. We went fishing, we plad tennis and bamigton.

Dyslexia Spelling of a nine-year old corrected by Ghotit

English is not a phonetic language, and therefore the “creative spelling” of a child with dyslexia or dysgraphia must be taken into account in order for a spell checker to provide value for a dyslexic child. However the “creative” spelling of such a child is basically “noise” and therefore any computerized program, such as a regular spell checker, that tries to correct a single word at a time (and not based on the context of the sentence) is doomed to fail… That is why Microsoft spell checker many times simply fails to correct a heavily misspelled word written by a dyslexic… and the reason why dyslexic children require…

Ghotit Real Writer & Reader for Windows

Ghotit offers the most powerful English spelling and grammar checker for people with dyslexia, dysgraphia and other writing difficulties.
Ghotit Real Writer & Reader is a Windows application that integrates with familiar Windows applications (i.e. Microsoft Office, FireFox, Chrome …). In addition, Ghotit Real Writer & Reader can be used as a stand-alone text editor.

Intelligent Contextual Spell Checker


Ghotit offers a unique context spell checker

Ordinary spell checkers do not take into account the context of the sentence the word is being used.
The context of a sentence can be leveraged to assist in the following:

Severe Spelling Error Correction

In the world of spell checking, the degree of how badly a word is misspelled is measured by the editing distance of the misspelled word to the intended word. The tradeoff is as follows: the longer the editing distance, the longer the list of candidate words that will be offered. Since ordinary spell checkers cannot properly grade the long list of alternatives, this long list is seen as adding “noise” to the spell checking algorithm. Ordinary spell checkers are tuned for people with mild spelling and typing mistakes, and therefore, prefer to offer a relatively short editing distance in order to minimize the list of candidate words.

Here context spell checking algorithms come to play. Once an effective context spell checking is introduced, a larger editing distance can be used since the spell checker can leverage the context of the sentence to optimize the suggested word list and remove the unwanted, out-of-context words.

Ghotit has developed an innovative context spell checker which is optimized for people with dyslexia, dysgraphia and other learning disabilities. Ghotit can leverage its context spelling engine to produce an internal long list of candidate words by defining a long editing distance, but then reduce this list and present to the user only the words that make sense in the context of the specific written sentence. High performance techniques were introduced in order to ensure that Ghotit’s context sensitive analysis does not affect user experience and does not introduce spell checking result delays.

Ghotit is the best thing anybody did for us people who have Dyslexia.

Misused, Confused Word Correction

Ordinary spell checkers either do not or provide very limited identification of misused words. If a spell checker does not have or has very simplistic context spellchecking algorithms, then it simply can not identify misused words. Without appropriate context knowledge, the spell checker does not have any information to provide for a misused word, and will leave such words as unmarked. In such situations, the writer will not even know that he has errors in his writing.

Ghotit context spell checking algorithms have been targeted to effectively identify misused words. A word that is spelled correctly, but has been identified as a misused word according to the words’ sentence, will be marked as such, with a candidate list of words based on the exact context of the word.

Grammar Checker

Ghotit performs grammar and punctuation corrections. The corrections are performed using both grammar rules definitions and contextual spell checking algorithms that analyze the correct grammatical intention of the sentence based on the context of the sentence.

Split & Merge Words Correction

Many times users accidentally or not knowingly split words (e.g. “birth day” instead of “birthday”) or merge words (“oneday” instead of “one day”). Ghotit detects these errors and makes the appropriate suggestions.

Self Learning Algorithms

Ghotit is the only spell checker that actually learns from the input the user enters.This patented technology, enables a user to run the Ghotit spell checker, and after the user provides some inputs the user may request to re-run the Ghotit spell checker to receive more optimized results.

Ghotit Intelligent Word Prediction

Ghotit Word prediction is a feature in the Ghotit Real Writer for Microsoft Windows and helps a user in his writing by “predicting” a word the user intended to type. Predictions are based on spelling, context, grammar, syntax, and frequently/recently used words. The word prediction feature assists in the writing of kids and adults who struggle with writing correctly, as it enables them to write correctly with fewer keystrokes. Ghotit’s word prediction provides highly accurate predictions, specifically when the writer is dyslexic or dysgraphic. 

Integrated Text to Speech


Ghotit’s main objective is to enable bad spellers to write with confidence. Using Ghotit’s integrated Text-To-Speech features, users can have their written text read out loud to them. The users can then act as their own gatekeepers to ensure that what they have written is exactly what they intended to communicate. Ghotit has integrated the Text-To-Speech feature to different options of the

Ghotit spell checker, including

Integrated Dictionary

If you are a really bad speller then you usually have not only problems in writing but also in identifying a correct word from a list of words. Ordinary spell checkers offer you a list of candidate words. But if you are a bad speller, then you do not know for sure which word is the correct one. You need assistance in selecting the correct word. In order to overcome this hurdle, Ghotit has integrated its context spelling services with a dictionary, providing for each suggested word its meaning/s. This additional information provides the effective information for a bad speller to select the correct word from the suggested words list.
