U+0250 – U+02AF   (592–687)

The International Phonetic Alphabet is designed with the intention of being able to describe the sounds of words in any language. It is used as a printed guide to pronunciation and in the study of phonetics. This range does not include the full Alphabet, which also needs some Latin and Greek characters, and some Spacing Modifier Letters. For a list of characters with their phonetic meanings, see John Wells’ The International Phonetic Alphabet in Unicode page.

The characters that appear in the first column of the following table depend on the browser that you are using, the fonts installed on your computer, and the browser options you have chosen that determine the fonts used to display particular character sets, encodings or languages.

You can find some or all of the characters in this range in the Windows Unicode fonts Aboriginal Sans, Aboriginal Serif, Alexander, ALPHABETUM Unicode, Andika Basic, Andron Scriptor Web, Arev Sans, Arial, Arial Unicode MS, Aroania, Avdira, Berling Antiqua, Cardo, Caslon, Charis SIL, Chrysanthi Unicode, Code2000, Courier New, Daicing Bible (few), Daicing Harmony (few), Daicing Round (few), Daicing White (few), Daicing Xiaokai (few), DejaVu Sans, DejaVu Sans Condensed, DejaVu Sans Mono, DejaVu Serif, DejaVu Serif Condensed, Dialekt Uni, Doulos SIL, e-PhonTranslit UNI, EversonMono, Fixedsys Excelsior, Free Idg Serif, Free Monospaced, Free Sans, Free Serif, Frutiger Linotype, Gandhari Unicode, Gentium, GentiumAlt, Hapax Berbère (few), Hapax Touareg (few), Hapax Touareg DàG (few), Hindsight Unicode, jGaramond, Junicode, Kliment Std, Kochi Gothic, Kochi Mincho, LeedsUni, Linux Biolinum O, Linux Libertine O, Lucida Grande, Lucida Sans, Lucida Sans Unicode, Marin, Microsoft Sans Serif, Monospace, MPH 2B Damase, MS Gothic, MS Mincho, MS PGothic, MS PMincho, MS Reference Sans Serif, MS Reference Serif, MS UI Gothic, PakType Naqsh, ParabaikSans, Quivira, Reader Sans, RomanCyrillic Std, Roman Unicode, Sazanami Mincho, Segoe UI, SImPL, sixpack, Sophia Nubian (few), STIXGeneral, Sun-ExtA, Symbola, Tahoma, Thryomanes, Times New Roman, TITUS Cyberbit Basic, UniBurma and YOzFontN; in the Macintosh OS X Unicode fonts Gentium, GentiumAlt, Helvetica, Hiragino Kaku Gothic Pro, Hiragino Maru Gothic Pro, Hiragino Mincho Pro, Junicode, Lucida Grande, Monaco, MS Gothic, MS Mincho, MS PGothic and MS PMincho; and in the Unix Unicode fonts Caslon and ClearlyU.

To see exactly which characters are included in a particular font, you can use a utility such as Andrew West’s BabelMap, or WunderMoosen’s FontChecker.

If you are not familiar with the characters, you can check the characters displayed here with the graphical display at http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0250.pdf.
