Practice Reading in UNIFON
If you have not downloaded the Unifon font, you will not be able to view the Unifon
script below.  Instead, you will see the keyboard equivalents.  If you have not downloaded the font and have a Windows computer, go to the version that uses the Symbol font.

Click on the radio button by the word that best matches the image.  If you select the correct answer, you will be notified immediately.  As soon as you make a choice, you will be told whether or not your guess was correct.  You only get one try.

As this quiz will demonstrate, Unifon is not difficult to read.  It will take about a week of practice before you will be able to type some words.  You already know the sounds of English, this is what makes it easy to read and write with phonograms or sound-signs.

In the traditional writing system there are over 14 different spellings for each sound.  A single vowel letter may stand for five different vowel sounds.  With Unifon, the goal is one sound per symbol.  The proper word pronunciation comes from the dictionary.  The on-line Merriam-Webster dictionary is almost identical to keyboard Unifon.  Writing in Unifon is essentially writing the pronunciation guide spelling rather than the historical spelling found in the dictionary.
