How to transcribe English into phonetic alphabet using Phonetizer.com

Phonetizer transcribes into IPA. The vocabulary seems somewhat limited (45000 claimed) – English spelling variants do not help, although Phonetizer offers BE as an input option. I have not found a length limit for the transcription with an article from the current Economist of over 1000 words – should be plenty for most reading/recording assignments in the LRC. Easy as (web2)py. Smile  The web version is advertisement-based. The downloadable version is not free, so we cannot install it in the LRC, unfortunately.

    IPA is passé. People don’t see the value in learning this illogical, computer-hostile system from the 1800’s. There are newer, better, easier phonetic alphabets in use. May I suggest the English Phonetic Alphabet (EPA) instead.
