Convert audio recording of word to IPA representation

The other answers have hit the highlights, going so far as to suggest that it is impossible in principle. Contrariwise, I argue that it could be done in principle, as long as you don't overstate what ...

Acoustic signal to phones?

Phones are a "thing" because they were the first decent method of objectively and accurately recording unwritten languages (in the 19th century). Back then, if you heard a Lushootseed speaker ...

Why is recognition based on phonemes and not syllables or morphemes?

Assuming the goal of writing a speech recognition program that does what the human mind does, a large non-linguistic front end must be dealt with first (a front end that is decidedly not part of ...

What do you call the same phoneme that behaves a little bit differently in particular environments?

IMO this is a classical terminological question. In some views, by definition it is an "allophone". The phones are the detailed surface sounds, a symbolic representation of speech without prejudice to ...

Is it possible to automatically recognize a single syllable as its IPA transcription?

This is impossible in principle, at least in the form that you asked. A modified version of the task might be possible. The main reason is that the input would be an acoustic waveform, which needs to ...

What phonetic elements is the word yes and no put together by?

I suspect you are not using the expression "phone level" in its technical sense. Also "detecting words at the phone level" isn't meaningful, but perhaps you intend "detecting words, given a waveform-...
