Truespel doesn't use special symbols, so that system, which does, is like the others.  The key is using regular letters on the keyboard to keep phonetics simple.  Ben Franklin dabbled in special phonetic symbols and gave up.  Not practical.  And he knew what was practical.  For instance I wear Ben's bifocals even today.  http://justpaste.it/flctruespel2015 .
