Ghotit has just released its Real Writer & Reader for Windows Tablets.

Ghotit Real Writer & Reader for Windows Tablets supports any text application running on Windows tablets.
Dr. Robert Iakobashvili, Ghotit's CTO and co-founder explains, "Smartphones and tablets have become an integral part of our daily lives. We take them everywhere, even sometimes to bed. And Windows tablets, being compatible with a standard enterprise and educational IT, are becoming the predominant tablet platform for work. "
Ofer Chermesh, one of Ghotit's founders, is a lifelong dyslexic. The struggle of producing readable text is well known to him, "The tablet revolution has affected the way people consume information and communicate. More and more people are adopting tablets and smartphones as the preferable means to communicate with each other. This is influencing the writing assistant tools developed for dyslexics. With the Windows tablet release of Ghotit Real Writer & Reader, people with dyslexia will be able to read, write and correct their text by using a standard tablet touch screen practices."
Regular text editors and spell checkers are designed to correct relatively minor spelling mistakes. In order to identify the correct spelling of a poorly spelled word, the context of the sentence needs to be analyzed. Ghotit offers a novel patent-protected context spell checking technology tuned for people with dyslexia and bad spelling habits. Using these algorithms, Ghotit can detect and correct not only really bad spelled words but also misused words, words that are spelled correctly but are written out of context. Ghotit also offers advanced grammar checking algorithms ensuring that the corrected text is not only error-free but also written with correct English grammar.
"For years people with dyslexia were forced to buy a number of expensive assistive technology tools in order to help them write freely. These tools seldom managed to work smoothly together. Ghotit Real Writer & Reader offers an integrated solution with Ghotit Reader seamlessly complementing Ghotit Writer," says Ofer Chermesh.
Ghotit first launched its only free online web service in 2009. Since then, Ghotit has released multiple products targeting Windows and Macintosh desktop and laptop users and recently has entered the tablet world with a solution for Windows and Android tablets/smartphones. Ghotit writing assistant solution has been adopted over the years by tens of thousands of dyslexic users and many schools, universities and training centers worldwide.
Though initially designed for people with dyslexia, Ghotit has demonstrated success for people with other writing and reading difficulties such as people who use English as their Second Language (ESL) and English Language Learners (ELL), enabling them to move to mainstream English Writing.
