the importance of vowels

I'm working on an IWB app to show the various rules of phonics. The plan is for it to have multiple functions - a slideshow for rote drills of A is a a ant and so on, a speller, a matching game for sounds and letters, and a couple of other doohickeys including handwriting into the bargain.

It will be a long time in development because it'll be my first time working with audio in a web app, and it is, to put it mildly, something of a nightmare to try and get an efficient cross-browser solution going.

Here's the thing, though. This is for use in elementary schools, and I almost named it the Phonicator. I feel like there's some new brand of irony in that it's only one tiny vowel change away from a word that is totally unsuitable for its target user base.
