Hi, Dan. My scheme of choice is X-SAMPA, an extension of SAMPA. You can see it at Most people seem to use either Kirschenbaum or SAMPA, or sometimes a combination of the two because neither system has symbols for everything; however, X-SAMPA is a good solution to combining systems because it has a lot more symbols than the original SAMPA. If you're interested in the other systems, go to the original SAMPA site at and Don Blaheta's page at
