The phonemic chart contains the 44 sounds of spoken English. It is an excellent tool for both learning and teaching about English pronunciation, but there is no easy way to type the phonemes with a normal keyboard. Use this site to "type" the characters by clicking with your mouse. You can then copy and paste to your software of choice, or even export the characters as an image using the save as image button.
Type in phonemic characters
- Click on the symbols with your mouse to spell out your word.
- Copy them from the textfield below.
- If using Word or another word processor, select a unicode font : usually Gentium, Arial Unicode MS or Lucida Sans Unicode.
- Paste into your software.
You can also save your word as a png image file (click save as image).
