Click on characters to create text in the box below, then copy & paste to your content.
You can also add codepoints and escapes via the "Add codepoint" field (hit return to add to the output field). You can also paste text into the output field to get information about it. Use the yellow boxes to set preferences or search. Regular expressions are allowed when searching – for example, to find characters with the word KA in their name, enter \bka\b, or the short form :ka:.
About the chart
Includes all the symbols in the Unicode the standard IPA chart. The table draws characters from several Unicode blocks.
I also added a number of additional diacritics and symbols requested by phoneticians using the chart.
NOTE: You can use phonetic terminology when searching (eg. 'affricate', 'palatal','lower', etc) in this picker, in addition to Unicode character names.
All text is output in Unicode normalisation form NFC by default. You can change to NFD or no normalisation by clicking on the buttons in the yellow area. Note that normalization only takes place when you click on a character - text pasted into the box won't be normalised until you click on another character above, or click on a button in the yellow area. (Note: normalization is turned off for Han characters in this application.)
The following alternative views are available by clicking just below the page title. You can start up directly in one of the views by appending the following to your URI: ?view=, followed by one of, respectively, default or fontgrid.
Default Characters are arranged similarly to the standard IPA chart. The trill and tap or flap rows of the standard chart have been merged to save space. The same applies to the
approximant and lateral approximant rows. Non-pulmonic symbols were also added to the last two rows of the table for the same reason.
Keyboard A subset of the characters in the default view are arranged as per the Unicode Phonetic Keyboard (UCL) v1.01 designed by Mark Huckvale. On any given key, the left-to-right order of characters corresponds to normal, shift and altgr.
Font grid Shows characters in Unicode order, using whatever font is specified in the Font list or Custom font input fields. This allows comparison of fonts (especially useful in IE, which shows if a glyph is missing from a font).
