This app-idea establishes a standard phonetic spelling application called truespel, based on English, simple enough for children to use. It can create an entire revolution in English teaching. Many products are envisioned from tutorials to translation guides.
English phonetics is actually non-existent. For example, what are the phonetic symbols for the sounds "ah" "oh" or "awe"? Dictionaries have no standard, and use keyboard unfriendly symbols that don’t copy/paste. Academics use a non-English standard. Newspapers, and even the US Government use a made-up look-alike spellings for phonetics. Truespel is the answer.
Truespel is mature. The English language is respelled in truespel. The free converter is at truespel.com. Four books are written using truespel. See Authorhouse.com. The Voice of America Intermediate English Dictionary now has a pronunciation guide in truespel.
1. Type an English word phonetically preceded by a tilde and it is replaced by a correctly spelled word in traditional spelling. Can apply to any type of text entry. (USA accent for now)
2. Translation guides
3. Reading instruction manuals
4. Kids’ phonemic awareness guides.
5. ESL English pronunciation tutorials.
There is no other English based phonetic system. Yet teachers need to teach phonemic awareness to children. Truespel enables this. It enables true integration of all literacy aspects for the first time: tutorials, dictionaries, translation guides, and analysis tools.
