About this sound [[:Media:{{{1}}}|{{{2}}}]] 

Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template links to an audio file for quick listening. It is meant to be used inline with text where there is no need to further explain the IPA, as in a phonology article. When the article does not explain the IPA, a dedicated IPA template should be used: IPA-en for English, and IPA-xx for other languages, where the 'xx' is replaced with the ISO code for the language (fr French, de German, es Spanish, ru Russian, etc.).

Usage

{{Audio-IPA|name of sound file|IPA notation}}

Example:

Swedish: åka {{Audio-IPA|sv-åka.ogg|[ˈoːka]}}, 'travel', 'go'

gives this:

Swedish: åka About this sound [ˈoːka] , 'travel', 'go'

If you include a lang parameter, it will specify which subcategory of Category:Articles including recorded pronunciations to place the article in, as in:

{{Audio-IPA|name of sound file|IPA notation|lang=Language}}

Setting |help=no disables the "help/info" links. If this is done the template {{inline audio}} must be shown on the page.
