Dyslexia Keyboard App for iPad and iPhone

About the solution

Ghotit Dyslexia Keyboard uses advanced writing and reading assistive technologies tailor-made for people with dyslexia, dysgraphia, and other learning disabilities.

"Mobile revolution has affected the way people consume information and communicate. More and more people are adopting mobile devises as the preferable means to communicate with each other. This is influencing the writing assistant tools developed for dyslexics. With Dyslexia Keyboard, people with dyslexia will be able to read, write and freely", the inventor explained.

Ofer founded his company in 2007, and his keyboard is already patented.

The solution provides a patent-protected context spell checking technology tuned for people with dyslexia and bad spelling habits. Using these algorithms, the software can detect and correct not only really bad spelled words but also misused words, words that are spelled correctly but are written out of context.

"Ghotit also offers advanced grammar checking algorithms ensuring that the corrected text is not only error-free but also written with correct English grammar", said Ofer.

The CEO was driven to create this product due to a particular situation, since most software at the time handle spell check, but can miss things like a correctly spelled word that is wrong for the context.

Ofer experienced this himself after a meeting with a prominent VP at a British Telecom. They had a great meeting and Mr. Chermesh left feeling good, having really enjoyed his time with the VP. The next day he crafted an email to the VP to thank him and tell him how much he enjoyed the meeting. Word corrected the mistakes in his email. Unfortunately, it didn’t catch that Ofer had typed, “I really enjoyed our mating”.
