IPA charts and sub-charts in four fonts
 
This page offers downloadable IPA charts with different fonts, resolutions, formats, and sections of the whole chart. The full Kiel, Doulos, and DejaVu charts here are the same as the 2015 pdf charts on the Association’s website except that they are dated 2018. See the Association’s chart webpage for more information about, and comparisons of, the fonts used in these charts. The chart sections and PNG image files here replace the 2005 versions on the Association’s site. (Image files may take a while to render; sometimes switching between open tabs or open windows speeds this up.)

We now also offer the chart in a TeX TIPA Roman (serif) font. This font has been selected by the IPA’s Alphabet Charts and Fonts committee from the fonts created by Prof. Rei as best representing the IPA’s symbol set. The unitipa font used is a version of tipa8, the initial product of the committee’s current project to produce a Unicode-compliant version of the original font. We note one difference between the symbols in this font and our standard IPAKiel symbols: the uvular symbols based on upper-case R have a large curved serif, a kind of swash. This shape dates back to very early versions of the International Phonetic Alphabet, though it has otherwise largely been replaced in modern fonts.

Tooltips charts: These new versions of the charts allow you to see full information about each symbol/diacritic by hovering over it. Tooltip charts don’t work in all browser-integrated pdf-viewers; best to use Adobe Reader. The same information is provided in the “list of symbols and diacritics” files.

Thanks to Małgorzata Deroń for all of these versions.
