Thread: Good font with diacritics?

  1. #1

    Default Good font with diacritics?

    I need to find a font that can do Semitic transliteration, including dots and lines below the letter, e.g. d underline for dhal, etc.

    I'm using Office 2007.

    Any suggestions?

    Default Transliteration Font

    Hi Ben:

    The font I've been using for Hebrew transliteration isn't bad - though I've had to add a couple of characters for my set-up (XP SP2; MS Word 2002).

    Have a look at:

    " http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&id=SILEzra "

    I'm planning to create a transliteration keyboard, but have decided to wait until I upgrade to Word 7 and Vista in the next month or two.

    Default Hebrew, Greek and Transliteration Keyboard

    Try the keyboards (including installation program) made by David Instone-Brewer of Tyndale House. It is available for both Windows and Mac.

    Transliteration is quite simple: Activate the Greek keyboard and then press the Caps Lock key. For transliteration most Unicode fonts should work. Personally I like the Charis SIL font.
