An explanation involves the irrational English spelling system. Even if the listener hears the unknown word correctly, she cannot necessarily spell it correctly. This is less of an obstacle these days thanks to the error tolerant and similar input functions of modern EDs (known in Japanese variously as aimai superu chekku, burankuwaado saachi, etc.). These features allow the user to input her best guess as to a word's spelling, then choose the target word from a list of likely candidates displayed on the screen.
