Alphonetic makes using the NATO Phonetic Alphabet (A for Alpha, etc) easy!

Alphonetic provides two modes of operation

* Individual letter alphabet - Either simply look at the grid to identify which letter of the alphabet to say or as you tap each letter it's pronounced out loud. Alphonetic can pronounce in both short form ("Alpha") or long form ("A For Alpha".)

* Phrases - By typing a short phrase in the Phrase Builder Alphonetic will build it up into a sentence for you. So when you press 'T' on the keyboard Alphonetic automatically substitutes in 'Tango'. You can even save your Favorites, such as your post code or surname, for common use!

So why would you use Alphonetic?

We've all been in a situation where we're are on a telephone call and the person on the other end just can not understand something we are saying. Whether it's trying to communicate your address to a call centre in another country or trying to book a table at a busy restaurant sometimes our pronunciation just isn't good enough. Often we have to resort to trying to spell it out but even that can be tricky, especially with regional alphabet variations (eg an English `e` is pronounced as a French 'i'!).

That's what Phonetic Alphabets were invented to help with but it's hard to remember the correct words and making them up just leads to confusion!

You can use Alphonetic when not on the telephone to remind yourself of pronunciation or pre-prepare full phrases or if you have an iPhone you can use Alphonetic to actually pronounce down the phone to the other party for crystal clear communication!
