Tomasz P. Szynalski, an English-Polish translator, has created TypeIt, a useful website for typing phonetic transcriptions in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). Text can be entered in a range of fonts and with special characters, marks and glyphs from other languages.
/’vɛri ‘hændi ɪn’diːd, ɘnd fʌn tɘ juːz/
I don’t know when it was developed – recently, I think. There are many websites with charts, explanations and audio files of IPA, but few that are designed for immediate online transcription. I like Richard Ishida’s, Weston Ruter’s, Paolo Mairano’s and this Phonemic Chart too, but it’s good to have options. Another: i2Speak.
Thanks to Lauren Hall-Lew, who brought TypeIt to my attention on Twitter.
[Note: I’ve edited this post slightly to add a couple of IPA tools that were mentioned in the comments.]
