The English language is rewritten (63k words) in truespel phonetics, an English-based alternative phonetic system that uses no special symbols. It's free as my gift for noncommercial use. The two-way converter is at http://truespel.com/en. Tutorials can be found by searching on "truespel" at youtube.com.
Truespel answers the need for a simple "phonetic" guide in common core for US k-1 students. It;s also for ESL students who say they can learn it in less than an hour and in a few days are writing with it.
Truespel meets these criteria as the basis of establishing a new alternative phonetic system as well as being a spelling system extensible to all language as a universal intermediary phonetic system once so developed http://justpaste.it/truecriteria
