IPANow! by PhoneticSoft is a unique app that automatically transcribes German texts into International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) symbols by applying rules utilized by scholarly lyric diction textbooks.

Key features:

*Easy-to-use! Simply type or paste a text in and tap a button.

Designed by a choral conductor and vocalist, IPANow! is a lyric diction resource for choral conductors, professional vocalists, church musicians and music educators, but anyone can use it. IPANow! allows choral directors to easily produce professional-looking phonetic transcriptions of foreign language texts to distribute to choir members. We believe you will find IPANow! an invaluable resource.

I love it but needs improvments

Please make it work with drag and drop on ios 11. It is very important! Thank you!

Five stars!

This app is invaluable! As a classical soloist I am constantly working on new pieces and often need a hand with my transcriptions. It is so convenient to be able to do so while on the go... It's like having a section of your university's music library in your pocket!

Great app!! Give it a try!

This app is a handy tool for vocalists, conductors, linguists, and many other professionals. You can paste a German text in and instantly see a phonetic transcription. Print, save, and share it easily. Highly recommended!
