This Unicode character picker allows you to produce or analyse runs of Burmese text using the Myanmar script. Character pickers are especially useful for people who don't know a script well, as characters are displayed in ways that aid identification.
Convert to IPA is intended to speed up phonetic transcription and to give a general idea of sounds, rather than to produce perfect transcriptions. For example, it doesn't apply sandhi or vowel reduction, and it doesn't handle irregular pronunciations.
To properly display the text you will need to choose a font that is loaded on your system or device, or use one of the web fonts downloaded with the page (Myanmar3, Tharlon, and Noto Sans Myanmar). The font list indicates which fonts are standard for Mac (Snow Leopard/Lion) and Windows7/8, as well as which are the web fonts. Note that the web fonts aren't guarranteed to work on every system/device, because the font often relies on rendering algorithms provided by the operating system. See more information about standard OS fonts in Mac and Windows.
You can also add codepoints and escapes via the "Add codepoint" field (hit return to add to the output field). You can also paste text into the output field to get information about it. Use the yellow boxes to set preferences or search. Regular expressions are allowed when searching – for example, to find characters with the word KA in their name, enter \bka\b, or the short form :ka:.
