IPAPhon is a family of four fonts with the full set of IPA symbols
(1996 revision). IPAPhon allows entry of regular text and phonetic
symbols without changing fonts. It is an attractive serif font with
roman, italic, and bold versions. An additional pi-font contains the
symbols of the extIPA and VoQS proposals for transcribing disordered
speech, as well as diacritics to fit narrow and wide symbols, and
other useful symbols. In total, there are almost 400
symbols. Extensive documentation makes it easy to find the symbol you
need. IPAPhon is available in Macintosh and Windows versions.
