Punctuation marks are symbols that indicate the structure and organization of written language as well as intonation and pauses to be observed when reading aloud. In written English, punctuation is vital to disambiguate the meaning of sentences.
Ghotit is the only grammar and punctuation checker that corrects punctuation in texts written by those with severe dyslexia / dysgraphia and restores sentence boundaries. Ghotit is also used successfully to correct punctuation by people who use English as their second language (ESL).
Spelling & Grammar/Punctuation menu is equipped with an integrated talking dictionary in addition to its read aloud capabilities.
Unlike competing solutions, Ghotit software for Windows/Mac works completely offline, doesn’t send any sensitive text to the cloud, and therefore, it could be used even at the workplace with the highest privacy requirements.
