Transcription of any language using the international phonetic alphabet. Use predefined layouts or make your own.

Clicking any letter on-screen will add it to the text field at the bottom, allowing easy copying and clearing.

IPA Keyboard supports dark mode and can be resized to use alongside Word, Pages, or any other app.

The new "Keyboard mode" makes it possible to assign custom characters to your physical keyboard while typing in the app.

IPA Keyboard includes a variety of language-specific keyboard layouts that can be edited. It is also possible to add custom boards.

Language-specific keyboards include: Full IPA, Australian (Mitchell/Derbridge and Harrington/Cox/Evans), Cantonese, Danish, English, French, German, Italian, Mandarin, Norwegian, Russian, Swedish, and Taiwanese Hokkien.

What’s New

Version 2.2.1

- Removed wrong palatal approximant on the full IPA chart
- Rearranged and added some characters to the default Danish layout (to see the change you need to reset the board layout)

It is a great app. But are there any keyboard presets so that we could use it to type IPA out of box?
