Phonetics is a branch of linguistics that comprises the study of the sounds of human speech, or—in the case of sign languages—the equivalent aspects of sign. It is concerned with the physical properties of speech sounds or signs (phones): their physiological production, acoustic properties, auditory perception, and neurophysiological status. With the development of technology, Bengali language has been added to many types of software to help people to write in Bengali easily. While writing on World Wide Web, someone needs to type the article in desktop software, and paste them in web interface, which is not definitely an efficient solution. Considering this, we have planned to develop a web based phonetic typing tool for Bengali language, which can be integrated on any web interface easily. We have decided to develop the tool in JavaScript so that it can be easily integrated on any web interfaces. Our goal is to make it “How You Say Is What You Get”. We will use Latin alphabet based phonetic transcript developed by International Phonetic Association with the help of Unicode applying Soundex Algorithm.
