If you are interested in alfubet enhancement we could use your help in several
ways ...                  

  • Write an interesting story using a single UNIFON character throughout the    story.

  • Teachers, critique the Readers Quiz. Will students learn the sounds using this   
    approach? Is there a better way to teach a sound/character match? Are
    the unifon_characters used accurately? Email responses.

  • Set aside money designated for the purpose of producing educational materials to teach, using  the UNIFON extended character set.

  • Create educational materials to be used to teach the UNIFON character set. Flash Cards, Games, etc. Feel free to send any created works our way for feedback and mutual inspiration!

  • Publish educational materials using the UNIFON  method. Feel free to post them on our website.

  • Create a UNIFON  keyboard for the PC or Macintosh.

  • Create voice activated software using the UNIFON  character set.

  • Translate or write an original science fiction work entirely into unifon_characters for publication.
