Another useful tool to know is the Character Viewer. It can be turned on when you click the keyboard icon and then select "Emoji & Symbols". You can click the settings icon on the top left corner and select "Customize list..." In the window that pops up, check "Phonetic Alphabet" and click "Done".
Below are the source files if you wish to adapt the Macintosh keyboard or documentation for your own use. The application for creating the keyboard is KeyLayoutMaker: or Ukelele. See Related Packages.

Hi Paul,You'll need to download and install one of the above keyboards (try the IPA Unicode 6.2 Macintosh Keyboard v1.5) to type IPA text. Downloading the keyboard is fairly intuitive, but installing it on a Mac is a little more complex. We've provided instructions at If you continue to have trouble with the actual text input process once the keyboard has been downloaded and installed, please send an email to and I'll be happy to help you further.
Hello, I've downloaded the "keyboard layout" and installed it properly. However, if I try to use it, for example, in a word processor, I don't get anything different than if I'm just using a standard American English font.
When you downloaded the keyboard, a PDF file should have been included in the package (if you can't find this, send me an email at and I'll send it to you). This PDF contains details of which keystrokes will display which IPA characters.
If you continue to have trouble once you have the font and the PDF, send me an email and I will help you check that the keyboard has been properly installed and that you have everything you need to get going.
I just downloaded the keyboard viewer and installed it, but was still having trouble finding the correct keystrokes until I read the pdf that accompanies the keyboard download. That has a really useful set of charts showing the location of the symbols and the vital information about the 'dead' keys. In other phonetic fonts I've used, these have usually been the option key, shift key or a combination of these. In this font, however, the dead keys are the = key, the < key and the > key. The fact that the latter two have to be accessed using the shift key makes it even more un-instinctive!
I downloaded the keyboard layout and font that goes with it, and set it up according to the instructions, but what I type still comes out in normal English rather than the IPA alphabet I wanted to use. Help?
Can someone help me access the IPA keyboard on my new MacBook Pro. I'm able to get the "IPA Unicode 6.2(V1.5) MAC, but it doesn't show IPA characters. I included it in my Library Keyboard Layouts and I have CharisSIL fonts installed.
On Windows, three keyboarding options are available: an IPA Keyman keyboard and keyboards which work through the Windows keyboarding system (MSKLC) for US, UK, FR, DE and PT (Portuguese) keyboard layouts.
It was designed to be similar to SIL's IPA Unicode Keyman Keyboard, in that the keystrokes follow a similar layout. In many cases keystrokes are merely reversed. That is, instead of typing n> to get a U+014B , you would type >n. This system is not always possible to maintain
