    Hi,

    I am very confused with the different types of vowel chart.

    Re: English vowel chart

    The one on the right isn't specific for any one language. The one on the left shows how the IPA has been adjusted to represent a specific accent of English. I'm not sure, but I'd guess the following:

    Central a for "father" and "bother" and "hot."
    Backer and round ɒ for "taut" and "cloth."
    ɔː for "boat."
    ʌ is "put," but it's in a mouth position usually notated with ɐ

    Maybe Inland Northern? Where did you find that chart?
