2005: "Dear Mr Mamone, this refers to your letter to the Philippine President, Gloaria Macpagal-Arroyo, introducing The DD-Code which was forwarded to us. We Find DD-Code very useful and supports our National Literacy Programs. The DD-CODE provides a systematic means to teaching English to a second language learner. DD-Code not only shows printed symbols corresponding to the sounds of the English language and how they are used in words and sentences, but also how these sounds are actually produced. In addition, although the use of DD-Code in the Philippine schools will be a great help in producing precise sounds of English language as accepted in different English speaking countries, the Filipino language is by itself a highly phonetic language, thus, the Filipino learner transfers this advantage in learning English." Director of the Bureau of Elementary Education, Dr. Teresita Inciong & Officer-in-Charge, Dr. Fe A. Hidalgo Philipinnes Education Department. 2005.
2005: "Further to your presentations and discussions regarding DD-CODE, it is obvious that the program has tremendous merit in helping enhance New Zealand’s Literacy challenges. I have spoken to several of my contacts regarding the use of the program and they feel that they would like to move a step further and meet on how you see the training of the teachers. They are excited that the program is different, simple and as one person put it, same program no matter what age." Jerry Norman, Chief Education Policy Unit, New Zealand Department of Education, 2005
2005: "The importance for any education department to know, and more importantly to access, the sounds of all letters of all words of English by all teachers by some directory, is vital and paramount. If literacy is the corner stone of education, then development of the Periodic Table of English must be the most important component of education both written and spoken. We wish to purchase DD-Code technology for a term of 100 years initially to preserve the Languages of Koqulai Nation. We will honour and observe as Joseph Mamone and his Family take their place in history alongside the few that have shaped human history.” John Clark, Managing Director, Koqulai Projects, on behalf of the 25 Chiefs of Koqulai Nation, Solomon Islands.

2013: “Katter’s Australian Party is concerned with the preservation of languages, especially the 300 indigenous languages of Australia that are in danger of dying out. A means of education that will address the needs of ALL learners is long overdue. We are therefore most impressed that you have created The Period Table of English that helps children to read and has the potential to assist seven billion people worldwide.” Janis Rossiter, Secretary, Katter’s Australian Party
2016: “The top student has been IQ assessed to determine if her incredible reading ability is IQ related and this testing discovered some previously unseen outcomes. Her literacy based testing showed an IQ of approx. 150, however her visual and auditory testing indicated a significantly lower capacity. This has lead us to the belief that the DD-Code reading program has enhanced her test performance in IQ testing.
Top students could be as much as four times ahead of the average Australian student which will significantly free curriculum time which will be invested in the areas of Maths and Science. Without doubt, this technology places all students at the front of their age cohort in academic performance from the beginning of their schooling journey, which will allow them to be successful throughout their schooling experience.” Hillcrest Christian College Principal Jeff Davis Aug 2016.
