Use a computer to implement and check solutions to classical paradigm-based phonology problems.

 

From the website referenced below:

Phonology Pad is a program written for use in Linguistics 120A, "Phonology I", in the Department of Linguistics at UCLA.

IPA MSKLC Keyboard for Unicode

This keyboard works well and is well documented. It allows you to type IPA in unicode (rather than in one of the outdated encodings), which means that you can type IPA into nearly any modern program that supports unicode. It is set up to not interfere too much with typing regular text, since with unicode it is no longer necessary to switch back and forth between encodings/fonts/keyboards.
