Type IPA phonetic symbols

There are occasions when you need to enter phonetic symbols into a document. For example, in a lesson plan to show the phonetic transcription of a word or in a language analysis assignment. Entering the phonetic transcription would typically involve using the ‘insert symbol’ function in Word, or memorising the keyboard shortcut for each symbol.

Typeit.org is a useful site that lets you type phonetic symbols, without having to know the keyboard shortcuts. After entering the phonetic transcription, just copy and paste it into your document.

Weston Ruter is an alternative site for typing phonetic symbols.
