To eliminate the confusion of like sounding words (homophones), Read&Write provides color coding of confusable words and lists possible alternatives with audible definitions and sample sentences, helping those with learning difficulties to work more efficiently. The same sounding words panel shows the list of words that can be confused and a definition for each to help the user find the right word every time. By identifying and providing audible definitions of homophones Read&Write ensures that each user identifies the correct word in the correct context.

The Homophones - Wellington Gay Men's Chorus
The Homophones - Wellington Gay Men's Chorus
The Wellington Gay Men's Chorus was established at the beginning of 2008 as a community choir open to all who wish to attend, and in November we were proud to present our first major concert, Around the World with Twenty Gays. Some of our members have choral or other musical experience and some do not; the ability to read music is not essential and the emphasis is on the joy of singing and participation in the group. We enjoy an eclectic range of music from Brahms to the Beatles, adding our own gender twist to the lyrics wherever necessary.
