Hello. I hope someone can help me out here!
In theory, I believe I have a simple task, but I have absolutely no idea how to execute it. I would like to be able to generate the IPA characters (IPA=International Phonetic Alphabet) for a given string of text. For example, the word registration entered into a text field should produce rɛʤɪstreɪʃən in what I assume would be a calculated field which produces a text result. This should apply to phrases as well as individual words.
One assumption I have is that I would have a table with at least two fields, one for the normal phoneme (letter) and one for the IPA form. Bear in mind that two normal letters may be required to produce one IPA character, such as sh produces ʃ, or vice-versa.
I hope I have explained my situation correctly. Thank you in advance for any assistance you might offer me.
