You need phonetic fonts Feb 3, 2006

There are specific fonts containing phonetic symbols. There are some available for free, and of course you can buy them too. Some "normal" fonts include phonetic symbols as well (e.g. Arial on MS systems), but they are probably less user-friendly to handle (e.g. requiring the use of the Character Map).

See e.g. here (or search the net for "phonetic fonts"):
