American Wordspeller © & Phonetic Dictionary
"Find Word by the Way it Sounds"
Type in 2-4 letters of your word by "how it sounds to you". Spell it just how it SOUNDS to you. NO spelling RULES required. Is it frustrating when you have a misspelled word and the spellcheckers only suggestion is...no matches found?!?! If you spell the first 2-3 letters wrong, good, this dictionary will find your word no matter how you spell it as long as the letters SOUND right to you. Over 65,000 common, everyday words excluding words which require capitalized letter at the beginning. No proper nouns in this dictionary such as people, places, things, times and events. Database would be too large.
Remember, just type the first 2-4 letters that YOU THINK your word starts with into the search bar. If there are too many choices...add a 4th or 5th letter to narrow your search.

Great app needs a little refinement
I have severe dyslexia and have tried a lot of programs to help me grasp this problem and eliminate the frustration and help I require to complete tasks that involve spelling not even Google can pick up some of the words that I right with that said when you spend most your time trying to figure out what words to write you either forget what you're writing about or skip out on the structural integrity of your work or your too tired and give up it and bosses or teachers to read I recommend it to everyone use this it will help with your spelling it will not fix the problem but it will g will give you back what you don't have and that is the ability to spell and on your own confidently the other stuff will come in time
