Dedicated to the use of the Deseret Alphabet, originally developed under the instructions of Brigham Young mostly in the 1860's to help learners of English have a method of reading English in a phonemic-based script. He hoped this would especially be useful for recent converts to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from various countries who were then immigrating into Utah.

The Deseret characters on this site should display on any device, whether it be PC, Apple, Android, tablet computers, or smart phones.

Here is an article from the 1859 Deseret News edition in which the Deseret Alphabet was first introduced to the general public: deseret_alphabet_musings1.

For a look at the entire 1st Chapter of the New Testament book of John in a normal Latin Script English column with a DA transcription in a 2nd column see: 2cols.
