IPA transcription in Unicode Look at this: [ə]. Do you see a phonetic symbol between the square brackets? (You should see a schwa.) Displaying IPA symbols For you to be able to display Unicode phonetic symbols correctly on your web browser, the browser must be Unicode-compliant (all current browsers are) you must be running Windows 95 or later, or, on a Macintosh, OSX; (otherwise, and for Unix or Linux, see advice from the Unicode site)you must have installed a Unicode font that includes the IPA symbols The list of such Windows TrueType/OpenType fonts currently available and that I recommend is as follows. The style sheet in the head of this document specifies the font Arial MS Unicode, or failing that Lucida Sans Unicode. Inserting IPA symbols in web documents There are several ways to insert Unicode IPA symbols into your HTML files: by using MS Word (97 and later), or by using a numeric code. Unicode decimal and hex numbers for IPA symbols The Unicode manual lists code numbers only in hexadecimal. Alphabetic
My Guide to iPad Deployment in School Almost two years ago to the day, I wrote a post, “The iPad: Why Teachers Should Care.” Flash forward to today, both of the schools I work at have purchased one iPad for each classroom. Although I’ve already mastered how to manage all the iDevices in my personal household, learning to manage iPads in an institutional environment involved a bit more learning due to the complexities of software licensing and the necessity to keep institutional accounts separate from personal ones. School Accounts You’ll Need: 1. A generic e-mail address. To repeat, you deposit gift cards into the VPP account and then redeem the download codes you receive through your school’s Apple ID. Although you buy 20 codes, you really only redeem one of the codes. We do not share any of the passwords for these accounts with the teachers at our school. Personal Accounts You Should and Shouldn’t Use Some schools do not allow teachers to install their own apps on the school iPads. Setting Up the iPads iPad Apps in Folders

List of Values The following list of values will help you develop a clearer sense of what's most important to you in life, as explained in the article Living Your Values. Simply print out this page, mark the values which most resonate with you, and then sort your list in order of priority. As you scan the values list below, you may find that while most values have little or no significance to you (and some may even seem negative to you), there are those values that just jump out and call to you, and you feel, "Yes, this value is part of me." This values list is merely a guide. It is lengthy and contains many synonyms but is certainly not exhaustive, so feel free to add unlisted values to your own list as well.

Phonetic transcription Phonetic transcription versus orthography The pronunciation of words in many languages, as distinct from their written form (orthography), has undergone significant change over time. Pronunciation can also vary greatly among dialects of a language. Traditional orthography in some languages, particularly French and English, often differs from the pronunciation. Therefore, phonetic transcription can provide a function that orthography cannot. History Narrow versus broad transcription Phonetic transcription may aim to transcribe the phonology of a language, or it may wish to go further and specify the precise phonetic realisation. The advantage of the narrow transcription is that it can help learners to get exactly the right sound, and allows linguists to make detailed analyses of language variation. The advantage of the broad transcription is that it usually allows statements to be made which apply across a more diverse language community. Types of notational systems

iPad 105 – Workflow | How to save, work with multiple apps and share iPad Published on December 17th, 2012 | by Mark Anderson One of the greatest positives of the iPad as a learning tool in education are the many different apps that allow students to create amazing pieces of work which demonstrate their learning. Not only that, but the productivity tools that go with their day to day activities are vast. Whittling down recently our core apps for students, you’ll see there are tools for taking notes, creating professional documents, presentations, making books, creating screencasts, the whole lot. One of the negatives with the iPad though has been the problems associated with workflow. Some recent developments have really helped to alleviate many of these concerns. Firstly, with the advent of iOS6 came the option to be able to open files within apps in other apps. In fact, this new option has been massive. Above, you can see just some of the options I get upon choosing to open my Keynote presentation in another app. The list goes on… “Save early, save often.”
IPA sound generator I'm very interested in that "synthesizer", too. I searched on the Internet and the closest thing I could find was a Text-To-Speech (TTS) demo from AT&T Labs on a Web page. Please see the Source section (1) below for the link. As many other TTS applications, AT&T's lets you type text, then it "reads" it for you by generating and playing an audio file. Now, according to the documentation, you can change the way the speech sounds by altering the input text by using XML-style tags from the SSML standard. Note that the IPA code should be within the quotation marks in the <phoneme> tag.
Linguistics Handbook Cambridge University Press (1999) The Handbook of the International Phonetic Association was published by Cambridge University Press in July of 1999 and is being regularly reprinted in both hardback and paperback. The audio recordings contained here are the words and text that appear in the illustrations contained in Part 2 of the Handbook and which demonstrate the application of the International Phonetic Alphabet to a wide variety of sound systems of languages of the world. The zipped* folders of audio files (as well as PDF* files containing revisions or other information) are available for downloading individually by language here. The files of recorded words in each language folder are cross-platform wav files, designed for use in classroom teaching, in phonetics or language laboratories, or for private study.
