Share | v1.1

What is this?

This is an online utility that will phoneticise any text that you enter in the above box

What does that mean?

It means that you get a list of letters in the NATO phonetic alphabet (also known as the international radiotelephony spelling alphabet), and names of any other symbols/characters that aren't in that.

What can I use it for?

It is useful for spelling out words and phrases to people to prevent mis-spelling, especially over the phone.

Why did I write this?

I originally wrote this for a limited company formation agent who take a lot of orders over the phone. People ask them to form new companies and this makes it easier for them to confirm the spelling of the company names and other details over the phone

What's new in v1.1?


There should be a programming library (in .NET) and possibly a web service (SOAP) available for you to use soon so you can integrate this into your own programs/websites

Take a look at my programming blog if you are interested in that kind of thing.
