The International Phonetic Alphabet is occasionally modified by the Association. After each modification, the Association provides an updated simplified presentation of the alphabet in the form of a chart. (See History of the IPA.) Not all aspects of the alphabet can be accommodated in a chart of the size published by the IPA.
This chart is specific for British English, and certain sounds that exist in American or Australian English will not be found in this chart, however, this chart should still be used for English learners looking to improve their pronunciation regardless of a preference for a particular accent.
