  • 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.

  • Xenotype offers language kits containing a font or fonts for each script. Language Kits sometimes also provide a keyboard driver. Language Kits are designed for Macintosh (OS X). However, since they are Unicode products it is possible the fonts may also work with other operating systems (keyboards will only work with Mac OS X). Each kit is available for purchase.
