  • Abyssinica SIL is a smart open font based on Ethiopic calligraphic traditions. It provides a regular typeface, with no bold or italic version available or planned. Abyssinica SIL supports all Ethiopic characters which are in Unicode including the Unicode 6.0 additions. As far as we are aware, all languages using the Ethiopic script are now fully represented in Unicode.

  • The goal for this product was to provide fonts for Ge'ez/Ethiopic script to help teachers and literacy workers prepare and teach beginning handwriting lessons.

    There are fourteen fonts in the package including Regular, Bold, Dots, Outline and Arrow versions of the fonts. Each of these (except for Bold) comes with a matching "Rules" version of the font.

    These fonts cover most (but not all) of the characters in the Ethiopic (U+1200..U+137F) block of Unicode. They do not cover the Ethiopic Supplement or Ethiopic Extended-A blocks.

  • Google has been developing a font family called Noto, which aims to support all languages with a harmonious look and feel. Noto is Google’s answer to tofu. The name Noto is to convey the idea that Google’s goal is to see “no more tofu” (tofu being the nickname for the small square boxes displayed when characters are missing from a font). Noto has multiple styles and weights, and is freely available to all.

  • The following link describes how to add a keyboard layout to Windows that is already supported by Microsoft. More comprehensive information on keyboard installation and use can also be found here  http://scripts.sil.org/KeyboardInstallationAndUse.

  • This is a set of multilingual keyboards for use with Latin alphabets as well as quite a few other scripts. An online keyboard is very helpful when you don't have to type a lot of text. It makes it possible to type within a webpage, copy and then paste your text into a working document. This kind of keyboard is probably not suitable for everyday usage. A regular, installed keyboard might be more suitable for a language that is being constantly typed.
