English spelling can be challenging and is rife with mistakes. Since the official pronunciation of the term is counter-intuitive and sounds like the word “fish,” the word GHOTI is used as an example word to demonstrate these anomalies.
Ghotit was founded by people with dyslexia. The goal of Ghotit is to raise a dyslexic person’s overall quality of life. Dyslexia cannot be treated with ghotit. It is a collection of services that helps adults and children get over their writing and reading challenges by assisting them in translating their incorrectly spelled writing into standard English.
Spell checkers are frequently used by children and people who have learning impairments including dyslexia and dysgraphia. Standard spell and grammar checkers, on the other hand, cater to the demands of the general public, whose spelling is average and whose typing errors lead to spellings that are very similar to the sought word. These spell checkers give users with poor English spelling, such as those with dyslexia, poor results because:
The spelling of the printed word is “too far” from the right spelling.
No support for confused/out-of-context words — the written word is a real-word that is spelled correctly but is used in the wrong context
The customer is not given any aid in choosing the best candidate word
The basis of the services Ghotit is providing for persons with dyslexia or dysgraphia and other sorts of learning difficulties is a set of original spelling algorithms that the Ghotit team has created. These algorithms were built with a focus on the issues mentioned above.
