International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) fonts

The following is a comprehensive list of modern open-source fonts that support IPA symbols. The fonts with the best IPA coverage include Charis, Gentium Plus, Doulus, and Andika, which were all designed specifically for linguists. Google's Noto Sans and Noto Serif also have full coverage, as these fonts were designed with the goal of covering as many Unicode symbols as they can in a neat, modern style (noting that no font in existence covers all 136,690 Unicode characters). Various Microsoft fonts also support IPA symbols extensively: Arial, Calibri, Cambria, Consolas (monospaced), Courier New (monospaced), Lucida Sans Unicode, Segoe UI, Tahoma and Times New Roman.

Some others fonts on this list have a few minor limitations, notably problems positioning some less common diacritics, or not supporting ⱱ (which was a later addition to the IPA).
