Nato spelling alphabet

The Nato spelling alphabet is used to simplify phonetically spelling out letters and digits more clearly when communicating over a phone or radio. A phonetic language - also known as a 'spelling alphabet' or a phonetic alphabet - is used by professional call centers, law enforcement agencies and armed forces, to identify letters precisely, either when communicating initials, abbreviations or spellings of words. A phonetic spelling alphabet is a useful reference for language and communications study and training.
