here's some URLs for the predominant IPA in ASCII encoding used on Usenet. it
looks like it should be able to cover most european pretty handily. weird stuff
like implovises are a little kludgy and i couldn't find any examples of tone,
but it is covered. the first page covers ASCII IPA in the context of English
(from alt.usage.english), and includes audio samples. the second page has the
"official" specification from the guy who wrote it.
