FAQ: Where is MS Word's Phonetic Guide?

Getting Chinese to Work in Windows Shouldn't Be This Hard...


I can't find MS Word's Phonetic Guide, which adds ruby characters above selected text. What menu or button is it?


Phonetic Guide was previously listed under Asian Layout in the Word menus. This is where to find it in Word XP/2002 and 2003:

Phonetic Guide in Word 2002 menus


Phonetic Guide was given its own button in Word 2007 and later, in the Fonts group:

Phonetic Guide button in Word 2007



And here it is in Office 2013 and later, in English and Chinese:

Office 2013 English edition - Word Phonetic Guide

Office 2013 Chinese edition/pack - Word Phonetic Guide
