A simplified alpha-numeric phonetic alphabet is proposed. It uses digits, standard keyboard symbols, and upper-and lowercase letters to give a computer-compatible unambiguous single-character phonetic writing of English. Such a phonetic spelling, in conjunction with a pronouncing dictionary giving standardized pronunciation of English words in this phonetic alphabet, together with appropriate computer compilers and speech synthesizers and recognition systems, would facilitate man-machine oral communication and expand the use of talking and listening computers. This phonetic text is considerably shorter than standard English, can be written on any typewriter or computer terminal, and is easily learned in a short time. Rules and characteristics of this language are given, and it is compared to other phonetic alphabets.
