Site | JSFiddle | Repl.it

Install

NPM:

npm install phonetic-alphabet-converter --save

Yarn:

yarn add phonetic-alphabet-converter

CDN:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/phonetic-alphabet-converter@latest/umd/phonetic-alphabet-converter.min.js"></script>
<script>
  window.PhoneticAlphabetConverter.default(/* string */);
</script>

Usage

Import module:

// ES Modules
import converter from 'phonetic-alphabet-converter';

// CommonJS
const converter = require('phonetic-alphabet-converter').default;

Parse string:

converter('Hello, world!');
// ['hotel', 'echo', 'lima', 'lima', 'oscar', 'whiskey', 'oscar', 'romeo', 'lima', 'delta']

The string is lowercased and characters not found on the alphabet map are ignored.

If the string is blank, an empty array is returned:

converter('');
// []

If the first argument is not a string, then an error will be thrown:

converter();
// TypeError: First argument must be a string

Second Argument

By default, the converter uses a mapping of the NATO phonetic alphabet:

import { NATO_PHONETIC_ALPHABET } from 'phonetic-alphabet-converter';

To override that, you can pass a custom object to the second argument:

converter('abc', {
  a: 'Amsterdam',
  b: 'Baltimore',
  c: 'Casablanca',
});
// ['Amsterdam', 'Baltimore', 'Casablanca']

Or you can assign values to the default alphabet map:

import { NATO_PHONETIC_ALPHABET } from 'phonetic-alphabet-converter';

converter('abc', {
  ...NATO_PHONETIC_ALPHABET,
  a: 'alfa',
});
// ['alfa', 'bravo', 'charlie']
