How to use the tools
Below you'll find information as to what each of the widgets do, and how to use them.
To use the IPA Converter, start by inputing a word into the input box above the submit button.
The IPA Converter will look through a dictionary to check if it has to IPA symbols associated with that word. If it does, the converter will output the same word, but spelled with phonetic alphabet symbols.
If you have the IPA charts on your page, when you hover over a symbol, the correct chart containing that symbol will automatically be displayed, and give helpful pop-ups that instruct you how to pronounce that symbol.
You can also click on the symbol you are hovering over to hear its pronounciation
You can test you're understanding with the IPA Quiz. Given a symbol, see if you can come up with a word that contains that symbol
The IPA Quiz works by pulling a random symbol from our dictionary, and displaying it next to the "Sound" label. We made sure to only pull out symbols associated with the language you're learning
Below the symbol you'll find two buttons, and an input field. You can use the "New Sound" button to randomly select a new symbol. When you're ready to guess, you can type in a word into the input field and press the "Submit" button
If you need a hint, press the "Play Sound" button, to hear what the symbol sounds like
