Ghotit Spell Checker plugin for Microsoft Word 2007

Ghotit is a plugin for Office Word designed to enhance the standard spell check capabilities of the application with dyslexic users in mind. Microsoft has long referred to both the Windows operating system and the Office System, its two main cash cows, as platforms, since the products can be easily extended with content designed to run on top of each product. Ghotit is an illustrative example not only of Office’s positioning as a platform, but also of how the product can be improved with assistive technologies. The plug-in both signals and attempts to resolve the limitations of Word’s spellchecking limitations when it comes down to users with special needs. In this regard, Ghotit is tailored to resolve the problems encountered by users affected by dyslexia.
