London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 25, 2012 -- Everyone is familiar with images of great Egyptian statues and monuments, such as the Sphinx and the Pyramids at Giza, and the inscriptions on temple walls and papyrus manuscripts are breathtaking in their beauty and symmetry. Now, this revolutionary new computer software is reviving the past for Egyptologists, students, artists, designers and schools and bringing the language of ancient Egypt into a new era.
The Tehuty 1.0 software is the result of 23 years' painstaking work by Dr. Ramses Seleem, Principal of Sia Academy for Ancient Egyptian Studies in London, who is an author and teacher of the ancient Egyptian body of knowledge. Dr. Seleem studied all aspects of the ancient Egyptian tradition for over twenty-five years. His studies involved not only the traditional 'classroom' subjects, which included religion, hieroglyphs, astrology, mathematics, philosophy and natural medicine, but also the Egyptian physical culture, comprising Sesh (stretching), Sesenti (breathing), Khentu (postures), Usert (power exercises), Sebek-Kha (warrior training), Udau (sound exercises) and Baau (glandular exercises). Dr. Seleem has taught and lectured in many countries around the world, including the USA, Australia, South Africa and Holland. He has also written many books on all aspects of the ancient Egyptian culture, including 'The Illustrated Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead' (pub. Godsfield Press, 2001) and 'The Egyptian Book of Life' (pub. Watkins, 2004). Dr. Seleem has appeared on MBC TV and other television and radio programmes, discussing the ancient Egyptian way of life and has been interviewed by a number of leading periodicals, including The Sunday Times Magazine, Red, What's On In London and Marie Claire.
Suitable for computer users of all ages and abilities, Tehuty 1.0 includes full word-processing software but also contains totally unique features, enabling you to type in both English and Egyptian, change Egyptian text to face left or right or write vertically instead of horizontally, all at the touch of a button. It teaches you how to write the Egyptian alphabet, explains the rules of the Egyptian grammar and contains full English-Egyptian and Egyptian-English dictionaries, in addition to a Talking Dictionary, which demonstrates the correct pronunciation of some common words and phrases. There are two versions of Tehuty 1.0 - Academic and Basic - enabling you to select the software most suited to your needs.
