This is IPA Palette version 2.3
What can you do with this thing?
IPA Palette is a palette-class input method for OS X 10.6 and later. It makes possible point-and-click input of International Phonetic Alphabet symbols into Unicode-savvy applications.
Requires my Onizuka localizer from https://github.com/K8TIY/Onizuka.
It's set up as a git submodule, so just do the usual git submodule
magic to get it set up (
git submodule init followed by
git submodule update).
IPA Manager relies on the Sparkle Framework for auto-update functionality.
Download that and extract in the
so that there is a path
If you change any localizations (they're all in Localization/chardata.txt),
./translator.py -s to regenerate the *.strings files.
- More localizations!
- Fix bugs.
- The twice (so far) -requested embedded audio samples for those learning the IPA. (Somebody please write a grant to get this done.)
- Sell it on the App Store.
- The PDF icon used in Snow Leopard and Lion doesn't invert (to white on black) correctly in the International menu, although it does in the Pref Pane. There's probably something wrong with the alpha channel.
- Limitations in the 'uchr' resource parser means that for some complex Unicode keyboards, like Unicode Hex Input, keyboard shortcuts for IPA symbols are not found. Fixing this is not a high priority but may be done eventually.
- You can't accept the Custom Symbols sheet by hitting return (at least not on my Snow Lion systems).
