We have released a Pronunciation/Translation App for beta testing here:
The App enables you to convert text written in foreign languages into SaypU spelling, whether the foreign language uses non-Roman characters (e.g. Arabic word ‘كلمة’ would be ‘kalima’) or Roman script (e.g. French word ‘chat’, which means ‘cat’ in English, becomes ‘sha’ in SaypU).
In addition, you can convert English text spelled phonetically into the traditional spelling (e.g. ‘frend’ --> ‘friend’).
Also, you can use the EngSMS language to convert English words into shortcuts (‘good’ --> ‘gd’) or to convert shortcuts into English words (‘gd’ --> ‘good’)
It is very easy to learn the SaypU alphabet using examples from popular English words (e.g. ‘very’ --> ‘veri’), by clicking on Menu, then Alphabet.
If you could test on various devices and forward any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.
