Spelling Alphabets (Phonetics) for the iPhone

I created a quick web-application for converting words to their phonetic equivalent. Obviously this isn’t the first website that can do that, but this one has been optimized for the iPhone (sort of!).

Basically all I had to do is add the following line to “HEAD” part of the document.

<meta name = "viewport" content = "width=device-width">

And that takes care of making the document be the right size for the iPhone. The rest had to do with the right placement of the controls.

The website also allows you generate the spelling alphabets using a URL. Alphabet (Just replace “Phonetic Alphabet” in the url with whatever word or sentence that you need converted).
