A Harvard study this year found that kindergarten students who tried to write using their own phonetic system were the best readers.  This shows that they crave a phonetic system which is modeled after traditional spelling as much as possible.  Truespel phonetics provides this system with one spelling for each of US English 40 phonemes adopting best choice phonics for the phonemes.  Truespel tutorials and a converter are free on the internet.  Learn about phoneme frequency in text also.  See http://justpaste.it/truequest .
