Character Entry Toolkit
CharEntry is a tool for inserting non-ascii characters into text, with particular emphasis on linguistic notation. It provides clickable charts of the consonants, vowels, and diacritics of the International Phonetic Alphabet as well as chart of precomposed accented characters. Clicking on a character inserts it into a text region, the contents of which may be saved to a file or copied and pasted elsewhere. A widget for inserting characters by Unicode codepoint is also provided. It is also possible to read from a file the definition of a custom character chart.
