One (1) Free Keyboard and Nine (9) Premium Keyobard layouts available. Language keyboards feature IPA symbols and characters that are typically used to transcribe sound set of that language. The symbols were selected from the IPA chart as published by International Phonetic Association, as well as popular dictionaries and learning materials. In layouting out the French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish keyboards, special attention was given to the relationship between orthography (spelling) and sounds. The Russian Phonetic Keyboard (Cyrillic) contains phonetic symbols as well as characters for scholarly and modern transliteration.

The developer of Phonetic Keyboards, Daniel Sommer, has a strong love of music and technology. For several years he taught English & German diction for singers at Mannes School of Music at New School University, and later German at the Manhattan School of Music. Additionally, for five years Daniel was the regular diction coach for the Oratorio Society of New York, a 200+ voice chorus (all of whom now love IPA). With these experiences in mind, Daniel designed Phonetic Keyboards to be intuitive and practical in a variety of settings. /hæv fʌn taɪpɪŋ wɪθ fəˈnɛtɪk kibɔːdz/!!!
