New feature: IPA transcriptions

Thanks to the author of IPANow!, we will now be featuring IPA transcriptions of a number of song texts in our archive.

The first one, for Bist du bei mir, has already been posted.

From the software’s website:

IPANow! by PhoneticSoft is a powerful yet simple tool that automatically transcribes Latin, Italian, German and French texts into International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) symbols by applying rules utilized by scholarly lyric diction textbooks. Simply type or paste in a text, and with the click of a button IPANow! produces an IPA transcription underneath each line of text that can then be exported in Rich Text Format (.rtf).

If you like this feature, please give the software a try!
