I understand that SE is pushing for localization and internationalization options.

Can we get an integrated IPA keyboard like this one for Hebrew in judaism.SE?

There is this bookmarklet: IPA Keyboard for Linguistics.SE

Add it to your browser as a bookmarklet. While on an SE page (maybe it only works on Linguistics.SE out of the box), press the bookmarklet. A little schwa will appear next to the "redo" button above the Answer text box. Press the schwa, and the IPA keyboard will appear somewhere on the SE page; when you click the characters, they appear in the answer bow. You can also use alt-a for ɑ, alt-a-a for æ, etc.

It does not work perfectly for me, but that may be my browser: I see only half of the keyboard. But give it a try.

  • @Charles: Yes, and chat! Maybe suggest just that in the original thread? Aug 29 '13 at 2:47
  • There is also this IPA Unicode keyboard page from the Linguist List. Aug 30 '13 at 0:53
  • @JohnLawler: There are many such pages, but this bookmarklet is integrated, it's not a separate page. Aug 30 '13 at 2:37
  • How wonderful. However, many of us are still differentiated. Aug 30 '13 at 4:21
  • @JohnLawler: No grammar-Gleichschaltung? Aug 30 '13 at 13:13

You can use either this one or this one.

  • cool. Very useful. This ticket, though is for a keyboard integrated into english.SE.

  • @Charles I have no idea how that would or could work. The first keyboard, for example, lets you enter all 188 IPA symbols in addition to regular typing, too, without interfering with it. Not enough meta-coke-bottle modifiers, I’m afraid, nor any possibility of an “intuitive” binding.
