Hi Paul,You'll need to download and install one of the above keyboards (try the IPA Unicode 6.2 Macintosh Keyboard v1.5) to type IPA text. Downloading the keyboard is fairly intuitive, but installing it on a Mac is a little more complex. We've provided instructions at If you continue to have trouble with the actual text input process once the keyboard has been downloaded and installed, please send an email to and I'll be happy to help you further.
Hello, I've downloaded the "keyboard layout" and installed it properly. However, if I try to use it, for example, in a word processor, I don't get anything different than if I'm just using a standard American English font.
When you downloaded the keyboard, a PDF file should have been included in the package (if you can't find this, send me an email at and I'll send it to you). This PDF contains details of which keystrokes will display which IPA characters.
I just downloaded the keyboard viewer and installed it, but was still having trouble finding the correct keystrokes until I read the pdf that accompanies the keyboard download. That has a really useful set of charts showing the location of the symbols and the vital information about the 'dead' keys. In other phonetic fonts I've used, these have usually been the option key, shift key or a combination of these. In this font, however, the dead keys are the = key, the < key and the > key. The fact that the latter two have to be accessed using the shift key makes it even more un-instinctive!
I downloaded the keyboard layout and font that goes with it, and set it up according to the instructions, but what I type still comes out in normal English rather than the IPA alphabet I wanted to use. Help?
Available for iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones and tablets, the free Easy Remote app allows you to control Daslight over a WiFi network. Simply connect to the same WiFi network as Daslight 4, download and open the app. Easy Remote takes all buttons, faders, color wheels and pan/tilt grids from the Show mode screen and displays them on your smartphone or tablet. A canvas size and zoom level can be chosen to ensure all components fit. Multiple pages can be created allowing you to add large buttons to your smartphone whilst being able to fit more buttons on larger tablet screens.
