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

Simply type or paste in a text, tap a button, and IPANow! produces a phonetic transcription underneath each line of text.

Key features:

*Easy-to-use! Simply type or paste a text in and tap a button.
*Copy/paste transcription output to an email or other apps.
*Print transcriptions directly from your device (with AirPrint).
*Save transcriptions for later.
*Customize the transcription output based on your preferences.

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.

Anxiety gone

This app made me so happy! I was able to work on my choir music w/o feeling inferior and anxiety about my Pronunciation. Thanks!
Would love to see a feature to save as a pdf.

Exactly what I needed!

If you're a vocalist or anyone who is required or wanting to get IPA transcriptions for your Latin pieces, this is a great (and free!) app! It's saved me a lot of stress!
