    Default Symbols?

    Hello, I'm learning phonetics and I've got a text to transcribe. I'm having a problem with the symbols, I can't find them all on word, so is there some kind of chart I can copy/paste from or something I can download and add? Thanks

    I think you may find the answer for your question in the following:

    Phonetic Chart of IPA symbols


    Phonemic chart | Teaching English | British Council | BBC


    Phoneme chart: English vowel and consonant sounds for phonology and language study

    Here's an online phonemic script typewriter:
    IPA Typewriter
    You can copy and paste from it:
    /i:ɪʊu:ɪəeɪeəɜ:ɔ:ʊəɔɪəʊæʌɑ:ɒeəaɪaʊ/
    It does it for both Word and the Web- click on the buttons on the left to select.

    You can get phonetic fonts here: http://www.arts.gla.ac.uk/IPA/ipafonts.html

    And there are instructions for using unicode symbols here:
