Phonetic version of a Word


#1

Is it possible in the WeSay dictionary to add a phonetic version of a Word?

If so, how do I go about doing that?

Having entered the new Word for the language I want to key it’s phonetic representation using the IPA.

Yes, I think it is possible. I think you either need to make the field visible (in the configuration panel) or add the IPA as a writing system for the language. I haven’t tried it myself but I think theoretically that’s what needs to happen.

Thank you for those clues.
The solution I found was :-

  1. in the Configuration Tool.
  2. panel named Fields.
  3. Tab sheet Setup.
  4. section ‘Input Systems’.
  5. ensure that IPA is checked.
