I see that they still need IPA tags to actually have the circumflex in the right spot, but it works. Thanks! :D

They do? :hmm:
Maybe it depends on the browser. It works fine for me, even without the tags.

Huh, I never thought to see if it works differently on different browsers. But yeah, on Firefox the circumflexes are off the the right side.

EDIT: And I just tried it with Chrome and same thing.

As I mentioned in the other thread, Windows users have a bad time using UniLang (even those on Windows 10!). It's not the browser, it's the font selection in the CSS. Trebuchet MS is a bad font for a language forum.

That was pretty much my thought after checking the two browsers. It must be a Windows/font thing. Yay.

I hadn't found the Virtual Keyboard until now either... .I'm sure I must have seen the words "Show Virtual Keyboard" below the text box before, but I must have just assumed it would be the same as my regular keyboard (because in some other programs I use that is what you get if you bring up a "virtual keyboard") and I never clicked on it to check so I never realized it had extended Latin characters, IPA, Cyrillic... cool!

I mean, we have g circumflex.


X̂ x̂

It's done, have fun! :D


Am I missing it, or is ä not included? If it's not, could it be added? The other vowels with diaeresis/umlaut are listed (ë ï ö ü ÿ) and even double grave ȁ, but I don't see ä. (I suppose it would be asking too much to suggest ǟ, ȭ, ḑ, and ŗ, but ä seems reasonable.)
