Now that I finally have Windows XP, I could do what I wanted to all the time
but couldn't because it doesn't work on Windows 98. I don't know how to do
that under Linux, otherwise, I'd have done it earlier.
What I mean is an IPA keyboard layout that you can simply install without
needing other tools like Keyman or so because it's a native Windows keyboard
layout. The idea is that you can enter X-Sampa (with some slight
modifications, though, e.g. "_>" and "_<" are simply ">" and "<") and what
will be typed is IPA. I programmed this with Microsoft's Keyboard Layout
Creator, which is not unpractical but only runs on Win <2000 unfortunately.
However, be warned, since I am used to the German keyboard layout, the IPA
keyboard is also has the German keyboard layout.
The file is here:
An overview about the keyboard is in the file xsampa-ipa.zip in the same
folder. The many deadkeys usually take "\" or "`" and such as argument. "_"
has all the letters for segmentals as arguments, e.g. _+0 = unvoiced
