Subject: IPA fonts for WordPerfect 5.1 DOS
For those of you interested in the question of an IPA font set for non-
Windows applications, the Lines, boxes etc + Phonetic Edition (IPA font
set configured for 9-pin, 24-pin and laser printers) is available for
You need MS-DOS or PC-DOS versions 2.1 or above, an EGA or VGA monitor
, Wordperfect 5.1, and a compatible printer (H-P Laserjet or DeskJet, a
24-pin printer or an Epson or IBM 9-pin printer). Laser printers running
with PostScript are not compatible.
Lines, Boxes, etc (LBE) does not interfere with other font management
procedures. Access characters directly using WP 5.1.
LBE is a memory-resident program that installs automatically at printer
port LPT1. when the user requires a special character/symbol from WP
5.1 character sets, the charcter number is translated into specific
graphic data which are sent to the printer. LBE characters can be mixed
in lines with standard printer characters.
LBE was developed specifically for WP 5.0 and 5.1 with a specialized
phetic character set that follows the IPA phonetic alphabet, diacritic,
and symbol set.
You can contact LINCOM EUROPA for more information. I also have the
full brochure including printouts of the characters in dot matrix and
laser printer sets.

You will need to look up the country code for Germany as I do not have
it here. It might be possible that you need to drop off the initial 0
when calling from outside of Germany. I am not sure of this as I have
never needed to call this number.
I hope this information can be useful for non-Windows users.
