    I absolutely second Manuel's request!

    His request is generic and can help a lot of people. For me, specifically, I'd need to use the ǝ and ɜ symbols to write in a gender-neutral variation of the Italian language.

    Hi,

    I just scrolled down the keyboards to find IPA. Strange that you have now the smallest dialectic differences in separate keyboards but no IPA. I'm learning Vietnamese now and the pronunciation of the tones is just impossible in their script. I really need this keyboard to have something to hold on to.

    Kind regards

    A quick, easy way to enter IPA phonemic symbols would be extremely useful to all language teachers. I would especially like the subset for the English language, because I teach English to speakers of other languages. This is a big industry, and you'd have a lot of grateful professional users.

    I teach a course in Linguistics to third year students. I'm in charge of the summer course and I need to prepare materials beforehand. We are going to learn the individual IPA symbols which correspond to the sounds of Canadian English. I'm using the Essentials of Linguistics by Catherine Anderson for this purpose. So I will submit a feature request.

    Same here! I had to install an IPA keyboard in order to take my phonology classes.

    Thank you for a fantastic app!
    I am Loving Swiftkey for more versatile, more mobile use of the multi-language leaning app which is getting me through this pandemic.
    I concur heartily that the addition of the International Phonetic Alphabet (including bold and unbold stress markers, and ALL other diacritical marks) would pave the way for SwiftKey to maintain its position easily at #1 on the list of choices users have between international keyboards for at least a decade. Looking forwards, this could be huge, as the world is a very large place, and we are communicating at a distance more than ever for the forseeable future.

    (BTW - why do I keep getting "tbis" and "tbe" instead of "this" and "the," and no option to correct? I await your bug fix eagerly. It doesn't feel like my typing causing the problem, because it never happened before, but maybe I'm just not understanding the tech - Edge 7s user.)

    I too would love to see IPA support as either an addition to existing languages or a separate keyboard for all IPA symbols!
