IPA Keyboard - a complete International Phonetic Alphabet keyboard for iPhone and iPad

Transcribe on your iPhone and iPad

A complete International Phonetic Alphabet (including all sounds and diacritics) keyboard which CAN BE USED IN OTHER APPS.

Developed by a linguist for linguists.

If you are a linguist, actor, presenter, public speaker or simply learn a foreign language, you often have to deal with phonetic transcription to note down the pronunciations of words and phrases.

The keyboard contains a complete set of symbols from the IPA chart. If there are any missing IPA chart symbols, please contact us via e-mail and we will add them as soon as possible.


allthingslinguistic.com: "The Complete IPA one is good and certainly worth mentioning. The layout is sensible: The main screen is qwerty with press-and-hold for related symbols. [...] There’s a secondary screen that basically has all the rest of the diacritics, plus the (non-diacritic) tone marks. [...] Everything is reasonably arranged."


The keyboard can be used in ANY app installed on your iPhone or iPad. It is shipped with a standalone app that allows you to enter a transcription of a piece of text and share it with friends or colleagues or send it to Evernote.

You might also want to try a separate app which contains all symbols necessary for phonemic transcription of English.

The symbol set has been based on two popular pronunciation dictionaries as well as research.

Both at a lower price

Both apps can be downloaded at a lower price in a bundle.
