With TypeIt desktop app, you can easily type IPA phonetic symbols (and foreign characters) on your Windows PC! TypeIt gives you the phonetic symbols you need but doesn’t force a whole new layout on you. It doesn’t change the way you type numbers and punctuation, so you won’t have to get used to new ways of typing characters like ", ? or /. TypeIt is the best foreign-language- and phonetic-symbol-typing experience in the known universe! Now you can type IPA characters anywhere – directly in your word processor, email, IM, Facebook, Web forums, etc.

Includes: Danish, Esperanto, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, IPA for English, IPA for all languages, Italian, Math/Science, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish & Turkish.

The “IPA for English” keyboard includes all the IPA symbols normally used in phonemic transcriptions of English words in dictionaries. In addition, it includes several symbols commonly used in “narrow” transcriptions, such as ʔ (glottal stop) or ɾ (alveolar tap).

Some solutions for typing foreign and special characters “take over” punctuation keys. As a result, you can no longer type characters like the apostrophe or quote by simply pressing ' or " because these keys are instead used to type foreign characters. While these solutions provide alternative ways to type an apostrophe or quote, why should you struggle to learn a new way to type punctuation just because you want to type phonetic symbols? Download and install TypeIt for PC today!

You can also download a trial version of the app, which includes all the keyboards (including IPA for all languages), but some characters are missing, and a trial reminder is shown every few keystrokes. It can be used for up to 14 days.

Main limitations of the trial version

  • Displays a pop-up message to every couple of characters
  • Does not include upper-case letters or the ʒ symbol
  • Will stop working after 14 days of use (days, when you don’t type anything, don’t count)
  • May be used for evaluation purposes only (no commercial use)
