What is IPA?

The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is an alphabetic system of phonetic notation.

The IPA spelling system (phonetic transcription) is more reliable than the English spelling system because the spelling of an English word does not tell you how you should pronounce It.

Linguists designed IPA to be unambiguous: every symbol has only one pronunciation. When you read a word in IPA, you'll know exactly  how to pronounce it.

Why should I learn IPA ?

The IPA is used by lexicographers, foreign language students and teachers, linguists, speech-language pathologists, singers, actors, constructed language creators and translators.

Every aspiring polyglot should learn to read the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). It's a powerful tool when learning any language.

What's the challenge?

However, many people find phonetic symbols, which are the ABC’s of transcription, bizarre and hard to comprehend.

How this app makes a difference ?

This remarkable app changes, in big way, the experience of learning IPA. It basically transforms the experience from boring to very engaging by making learning and practicing addictive.

Besides English to IPA conversion allows other conversions: Spanish to IPA, Portuguese to IPA, German to IPA, Italian to IPA, Polish to IPA and Esperanto to IPA.

This is the best IPA app ever and the only one that is interactive, not just a static chart with sounds. Reliable, user friendly and practical to use. Congratulations for the concept and I hope to see it grow. The fact that has no contact info shows a real dedication to the spirit expressed in the About section. Thank you!

Works quite well for determining pronunciation of words from any of the supported languages, but it would benefit greatly from the ability to use IPA symbols directly (i.e. a language option which just "translates" the inputted text to itself with non-IPA symbols removed)

This is an excellent app probably the best I have ever tried, this is what I have been waiting for a long time. 👍 Do you think you can add the function where I am reading a text on a web page and I would like to be able to highlight a word and have the option to transcribe it directly to phonetics with this app. THAN YOU.

Thank you Manuel for your review and feedback 🙏. We are working on an option to transcribe a whole article. But if you only need to transcribe a word you might find our chrome extension (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/unalengua-ipa-translator/cgdbpnmhhkgaaahpmgmmibiifdegidbl) useful, we developed it with that exact use case in mind.
