They Used To Read Without the Points or Vowel Symbols

Is it true that Qur'an was revealed with letters that had no points nor vowel symbols, indicating how they should be pronounced? If so, how then was it recited?

Is it true that the early Mushafs that were recorded had no vowels, points or signs indicate when to pause; rather, points and vowels symbols were actually written during the time of the Tabi'in (Companion of the Prophets Companions). During the time of the Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wassallam , people would read, not from written, from their memory and from what they were taught by their teachers.
