I need a fonetic transcription font for Word. I'm not sure whether Word already has one; I use Word XP.
Does anyone happen to know if such a font exists?

Thanks a lot,
Veronica

Just insert symbols Jul 8, 2003

Yes, there is a phonetic font in Word XP (at least I have one in mine).

To insert phonetic symbols go to Insert --> Symbol --> look for the PhoneticTM font -- et voila!

You can also create your own keyboard shortcuts for inserting the symbols (in order to simplify typing) (for example, Alt+Shift+Letter, or something like that).

Thank you, Natalie Jul 8, 2003

There is WP Phonetic in my WordXP. I'm afraid it's not for English, I don't see many of the English phonetic marks there - it may be because of my Word installation. Did the font you have come with Word XP?

Kind regards,
Veronica
