International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) Charts

These International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) charts are designed by Eric Armstrong and voiced by Paul Meier (dialect coach and author of the best-selling Accents & Dialects for Stage and Screen). If the charts do not automatically appear, click or tap the large orange-and-white play button. The charts should work on all computers and devices, but, for best display, we recommend a large screen.

The charts are also available as an app for your iPhone or iPad (click here or search the app store for “Interactive IPA”), or Android.

Vowels, consonants, ingressives, suprasegmentals, intonation, diacritics, ejectives, implosives, diphthongs, triphthongs, and clicks are demonstrated. Clicking a chart links you to an animation.

The latest version of the IPA Alphabet was published in 1993 (updated most recently in 2015) by the International Phonetic Association. In addition to the official IPA charts, we have also provided a chart demonstrating diphthongs and triphthongs of Standard British English and General American.
