Keyboard

This online keyboard let’s you type IPA using your hardware keyboard. The full IPA character set is arranged into 4 layouts:

  • Main: most common characters;
  • WIth Shift key down: the rest of most common characters;
  • With Alt key down: diacritics;
  • With Alt+Shift down: tone marks, clicks and the rest characters.

Press Shift and/or Alt keys on your hardware keyboard to learn the additional layouts. When you are happy, just copy the content of the field with your usual “Select All” and “Copy” commands.

How can I do to write Phonemes in social media. COPY AND PASTE?

When I press ctrl+c (I’m using Chrome on Windows 10), it doesn’t copy the selected text, and it also replaces it with “ɔ”. (I can right-click to copy it, but if I forget and press ctrl+c, it’s frustrating and can make me lose what I’ve done.
Then if I press ctrl+z, it doesn’t undo it, and it also types a “z”.

It will make this tool a lot nicer to use if you:

  1. Don’t swallow the user’s inputs if they’re pressing ctrl, and/or
  2. Allow the user to press ctrl+z to undo previous actions (and ctrl+shift+z or ctrl+y to redo them) — I can guess that the way you’re implementing this currently may not be compatible with the default undo system for text areas, in which case you would have to either create an undo stack from scratch or change the way the IPA keyboard works, but an undo feature would really go a long way.

In any case, this can certainly be a very useful tool, and I appreciate it regardless.

Thank you!

Would it be possible to get a find/replace function for this? Or at least retain the highlighting from the transcription?

Just a short notice to congratulate you on your work! This keyboard works flawlessly on my (old) Mac, exactly as expected. It was a very nice touch to figure out if this page is being seen by a computer with a Mac keyboard layout and adjust the key labels for the modifier keys accordingly (I keep forgetting which one is supposed to do what!).
Simple, but effective, and I’d say it covers 99% of my incredibly limited IPA vocabulary.

Thanks again!
