It is with great sadness that we report on the passing of the author of Real Spelling, Michel Rameau.
The work that Michel produced through Real Spelling is astonishing
in its depth, breadth, scientific rigour, and also for its impact.
His work has transformed the lives of so many individuals and families of people who had despaired of ever succeeding in literacy despite years of instruction in schools and tutoring.

His work is also a gift to those who are just fascinated with language.
It is an honour to ensure future generations have access to the Real Spelling Tool Box 2 and Orthographica so that we can continue to learn from, build on, and refine the foundational understanding Michel has bequeathed to anyone curious enough to pull on that real spelling thread.

We are trusting you not to make copies of the resources on this site for others! A subscription is for one person, and we are trusting you not to let others use your login.

The TBox 2 Themes do offer you the ability to open and save your own copies of study resources. You can also print out pages for your own reference though, of course, you lose all interactivity by doing so.

But making copies of these resources and distributing them to others is not only unfair; it is also theft.

We ourselves never allow pirated or illegal copies of intellectual property of any sort to be used in our home or our work, and we share what we do with others on the basis of trust that you will not abuse that trust. Naive though we know that to be, we much prefer to live that way rather than behaving with suspicion and defiance.

In any case, even protection devices are of little real effect against a determined pirate, and such systems can be extremely annoying to the user too, so we don’t encumber our site with them.

All we ask is that you be reasonable and fair in your respect for the time, effort and devotion that we put into the satisfaction and pleasure of working for you all.
