Spell Me!I un-dusted some old applications and one of them is Spell Me!. It’s a simple, yet freeware, tool capable of doing various text conversion. It can converted text using one of built-in alphabets. Most popular usage (and the main reason this application was written) is to convert to phonetics alphabet. Whenever you find necessary to spell someone name or any sequence of letters, especially over the phone or other (usually) noisy media, you may find it might be much easier to spell it using, instead of fficial alphabet spelling, regular words that start with given letter. This system is widely used by pilots and ham radio operators worldwide and was proven o be readable and pronounceable to any person on the world, no matter of nationality or native language. Version 1.1 brings clipboard support, 5-Way navigation handling and on-line version checker. Get your copy from PalmGear or from local repository.

    Thank you very much for this useful application, and for making it freeware. Is it possible to add a user-defined alphabet for future releases? I understand that most people would be able to read or understand the words NATO chose, but some of the words are pronounced differently in other languages, which can be a bit misleading. People with a different phonetic system would also be able to use it. That would make your application more “universal”. Thank you very much.

    Editable alphabets are hardly possible I am afraid due to internal code structures (each alphabet got own translation routine). Still, I am open for any suggestion of new alphabets to be added. If I understand correctly, you’d like to see your language based words for translator like NATO? No problem. Just provide any valid source of such translation table I could use. It shall be something widely known in your country/language are, not just your vision, please ;)
