For MS Word users, I've just uploaded a set of Word macros
that convert Latin-1 input into sort-of-IPA (and also to
Slavic accentological symbols). Tested with the Doulos SIL
Unicode font, version 4.0.10, to be found for free at:
The .dot file is in
and is called IPA_Slavic.dot. Install it in the Word
startup directory to have the macros always available (the
menu items "Format/IPA" and "Format/Slavic" must be saved to
Normal.dot in order for them to be available). I don't know
if this works on Word for Mac.
The Latin-1 input is basically my Latin-1/IPA encoding
scheme, and the output is IPA, except where I don't like it
(affricates, etc.). See examples in teh .dot file itself.
I'm crossposting to cybalist, in case there's any interest
