How can I install phonetic transcription in Advanced English 2018? I remember that old versions of Advanced English had easy access to IPA transcription?

Older Answer

To reduce the size of the original download, phonetic transcription is a separate module (phonetic.zip).

This is what you need to do to install:

  1. unzip phonetic.zip into SuperMemo's \phonetic\ folder (this folder is part of SuperMemo, not part of Advanced English, e.g. c:\supermemo\phonetic)
  2. in Tools : Options : Language : Phonetic transcription, choose English

To see your transcriptions in SuperMemo, use Alt+Y.

To change the font for the transcription, use Tools : Options : Language : Phonetic transcription : Font. This does not need to be SuperMemo IPA font. The registry is Unicode now.

If you have older versions of Advanced English, you can receive new transcription registry download free. However, you will need SuperMemo 17 as registry format is version-dependent.

Followup: Where is phonetic.zip?

Where can I find / download the phonetic.zip file? I don´t have a folder called "phonetic" in my Supermemo folder (using Supermemo 17) and also didn´t get it with the AE2018 download (and no other info about it). Please advice, thanks in advance.
