English phonemic transcription

"Phonology practice using the international phonetic alphabet for English language learners and teachers" by Ted Power.  

 

Shona Whyte:

Many links to places to learn about English pronunciation and practice with vowels and consonants.  Some quite old sites, but useful practice in transcription and phonetics nonetheless.

Had a couple of goes with MP3 files, haven't been able to make it work. Could be me. Anyone else had any success?
Mirna Tonus's comment, February 16, 2012 7:55 AM
I expected that the tool could make transcription automatically. It's goal is make easier as we don't need to change (alt+tab) between the word processor and the player. It's a good help.

oTranscribe

oTranscribe | TELT | Scoop.it
A free HTML5 app to take the pain out of transcribing interviews. Useful for journalists, academics and anyone else transcribing audio. And it's open source, too.
Shona Whyte's insight:

I've been using the German F4/F5 (Transcriptions for Mac) - this looks like a worthy alternative to try out.

Transana: transcript/analysis

Transana: transcript/analysis | TELT | Scoop.it

Transana is software for professional researchers who want to analyze digital video or audio data. Transana lets you analyze and manage your data in very sophisticated ways. Transcribe it, identify analytically interesting clips, assign keywords to clips, arrange and rearrange clips, create complex collections of interrelated clips, explore relationships between applied keywords, and share your analysis with colleagues. The result is a new way to focus on your data, and a new way to manage large collections of video and audio files and clips.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Alternative to ELAN for audio/video transcription.  Also free.

A World of Englishes: Is /ə/ "real"?

A World of Englishes: Is /ə/ "real"? | TELT | Scoop.it
Is /ə/ "real"? "Is schwa a real phoneme?" asked a first year student, during a preliminary session preparing them for transcription in the second year. What an excellent question!
 The issue arose because I had referred them to John Wells' standard lexical sets to describe English vowel sounds more easily. This is a list of English phonemes with keywords devised by Prof Wells and given in his three-volume book Accents of English(1982). Rather than trying to explain in articulatory terms what /ʊ/ is in comparison with /ʌ/, for example, they can be referred to as the FOOT and STRUT vowels respectively, and then discussion about them appearing (or not) in various accents of English can also be facilitated.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Interesting, accessible discussion with hyperlinks and further discussion in comments.

Phonetic transcription

Phonetic transcription | TELT | Scoop.it

Sometimes it's good to be able to use phonetic symbols even if you're not teaching phonetics formally.  IPA symbols can be useful for pronunciation awareness, for example.  But there are always problems with compatibility of browsers, wordprocessing software and printers across different computers. 

 

Here are two sites for typing with the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA).

 

Type it: http://ipa.typeit.org/

Typwriter: http://www.e-lang.co.uk/mackichan/call/pron/type.html

 

You can click on the letters of the onscreen keyboard on either site, or learn keyboard shortcuts to go faster on typeit.
