SoundSpel: A Free Software Product
SoundSpel adds to Microsoft Word(tm) the capability for one-click translation from regular spelling to phonic spelling sometimes called SoundSpel. Type or open a document in Word, click a button, and in seconds see the document in phonic form (SoundSpel form.)
There is also a twin product called "DoubleLine." This program product produces a line of SoundSpel under a line of regular spelling. A struggling reader or ESL student can check hard words by just comparing the word in question with the same word in the line below, providing a consistent use of letters that assists pronunciation, especially for foreign-born students.
The address for downloading SoundSpel and/or DoubleLine is http://www.ententetranslator.com/IDL.htm
