Notes from a Linguistic Mystic

One of the most popular posts on this site is my guide to using IPA fonts with OS X, which offers deep, system-level integration for the IPA with OS X. This still works (wonderfully), but there are some situations where that won’t work, either when you’re on somebody else’s machine, or, worse still, on Windows.

For those situations, I highly recommend i2speak, an online keyboard which allows you to use all the various IPA characters with extreme ease. In fact, you’ll find that some characters are actually easier to type quickly. It then actually saves the output as a .doc or .png files. Unfortunately, I can’t manage to get copy/paste working in Chrome, but it’s still definitely better than hunting around in a character palette when you’re away from home.
