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 in most cases sentence boundaries. Ghotit is also used successfully to correct punctuation by people who use English as their second language (ESL).
