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.

This is my first time seeing the keyboard. I love the idea! I haven’t yet been able to try it out, but I will be doing so, for sure.

Is it best to post problems and issues into which we might run ; ) here as comments, or is there an official bug-reporting tool?

alt+spacebar seems to be intercepted by the operating system to prioritize some sort of search function, i’m on desktop running windows 10
