Help for dyslexics and very poor spellers

Typ-O is an application that helps those with low spelling skills. It has knowledge of the most common spelling mistakes and predicts which words are likely to be used, thus being able to suggest corrections even in a very poorly spelled text.

The corrections can be read aloud by a synthetic voice to help choose the correct spelling of each word. Also, the finished text can be read through by the synthetic voice to check for spelling mistakes.

The text then can be pasted into other applications, such as Word, email, etc.

The application is available for Mac, iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, and one can get it from the App Store.

I am not aware of any similar applications for the PC and Android systems - we need people familiar with these systems to contribute to this blog!
