Genuinely Useful, but Speech & Pronunciation Flawed

Great for people who only occasionally use the NATO phonetic alphabet. Useful for communicating serial numbers, model numbers, and other information required by technical support for products and services, just to cite one use.

The speech-synthesized voice has little value. It speaks far too slowly. The pronunciation is not correct. For example, in th NATO alphabet, “Lima” is pronounced “LEE-MAH.” This application pronounces it “LIE-MAH.” “Oscar” should be pronounced “OSS-CAH.” This program pronounces it “AW-SKER.” Instead of pronouncing “Victor” as “VIK-TAH,” per the NATO pronunciation, it pronounces it “VIK-TOR.” There are other examples, but suffice it to say that it’s just wrong and misleading.

Would Pay for More Features!

It took a suprising amount of time to find a sutable offline NATO converter for the Mac. Aa functions as such, but also offers support for common substitutions (David, Italy, London, and Washington).
I greatly apprecite this application's existance, would pay for its continued development, and would absolutely love a more indepth tool for title case alterations, randomization, etc.
Thank you!

Simple, does what it's supposed to do

Never had a problem with it, everyone should have this on their computer even if you're not a ham. Ever have that problem trying to get someone to understand you or spell something over the phone? Get this and spell it the right way. :)
