Deseret Alphabet Info

The Deseret Alphabet is a phonetic alphabet for writing English. It was developed in the 1850s at what was then the University of Deseret and is now the University of Utah. It was not a success.

The advent of computers and digital typefaces have lead to something of a renaissance of the Deseret alphabet. Interested? Here are ways to experience it for yourself.
