IPA is a digital diction performance resource providing the tools you need for clear and correct pronunciation.

Know what you are saying and how to say it.


The IPA Source team is dedicated to providing easily accessible PDF translations to
help vocalists prepare for a flawless performance. Our PDF files contain three languages: the original language, an IPA translation of the original language, and the English translation.


All the IPA Source translations are provided in PDF format. If a different format is required, we are willing to provide assistance that suits the needs of the customer. However, audio files are not provided.  It is our intention to promote the comprehension and accurate pronunciation of foreign language texts in art song and opera. We do this by using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), a visual phonetic representation of sound that is presented through Sil Sophia IPA9 font.


A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) document is available upon request.
