Karaite aleph-bet

I came across this very interesting aleph-bet.

It is from this the Karaite congregation Orah Saddiqim's children's page.

For an abecedarian geek like me it's pretty cool to see an alternate aleph-bet tradition that I'd never seen before. Also interesting is the sound samples on the page. Be sure to check out espeically the unique pronunciation of 'ayin, sin and samakh (there is a difference!).
