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 trade-off 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.
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.
Ghotit performs grammar and punctuation corrections. The corrections are performed using both grammar rules definitions and contextual spell checking algorithms that analyse 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.
Ghotit’s Enrichment feature can be used to show the user where they have repeated the same words several times within their work and will then intelligently offer synonyms and alternatives. This helps students to improve their vocabulary, use richer language in their written work and avoid repetition. It helps to remove the worry that they do not know how to “write properly”.
