AfroRoman® in Unicode
Now you can get the AfroRoman font in a Unicode-encoded version!
|What others are saying|
AfroRoman® in Unicode™ is available for both Windows and Macintosh and provides professional-quality, Unicode-encoded fonts in TrueType® OpenType® format in five typestyles (Times®-, Helvetica®-, Garamond-, Palatino®-, and Zapf Chancery®-styles), each in plain, bold, italic, and bold-italic styles (except AfroRomanChanU, which is plain only). AfroRoman in Unicode (hereafter AfroRomanU) supports more than 1540 African languages, plus English and other west European (or Latin 1) languages. These beautiful, unique fonts contains 1947 letters, accents, diacritics, and accented character combinations that are easily typed with the included keyboard software. The AfroRomanU fonts support the following African languages (see the expanded lists under Bantu, Chadic, and Dinka):
|Buluba-Lulua||Kinyarwanda (Kinya-rwanda)||Serere||Western Sotho|
|chiKaranga||Lu-Gande||Shona||Wolof of Senegal|
|Dinka (Jaang) dialects||Matabele||Somali||Yoruba|
*Ewe is also known as Ebwe, Efe, Ehwe, Eibe, Eue, Eve, Gbe, Krepe, Krepi, Popo, and Vhe.
The AfroRomanU fonts also support the following Latin 1 languages: Albanian, Basque, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, English, Faroese, Finnish, Flemish, French, Galician, German, Hawaiian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Malay, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swahili, and Swedish.
AfroRoman in Unicode for Windows
AfroRoman in Unicode for Windows includes six keyboard layouts that provide four-characters-per-key input (instead of the normal two-characters-per-key) in Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, 2000 and NT4. The keyboards are phonetic, based on the US keyboard, and allow easy input of all characters and diacritics supported by the fonts.
The first keyboard layout (called the AfroRomanLS OT layout) takes advantage of the OpenType layout features built into the fonts for the most logical, intuitive input possible. Input order is letter, accent, accent. The letter with its associated diacritics is built up automatically as you type, with all diacritics perfectly spaced. This keyboard layout requires OpenOffice.org Writer version 3.0, Microsoft Word 2007, Word 2003, or another component of Microsoft Office 2007 or 2003 (except PowerPoint 2003, which is not compatible), InDesign CS4, or QuarkXPress 8.02; see System Requirements. The included keyboard chart shows exactly what keystroke the user must type.
The second keyboard layout (called the AfroRomanLS Deadkey layout) works with any Unicode-compatible application and uses dead key input to type letters with their associated diacritics. The user first types the dead key (representing the accent) and nothing happens. Then the user types the letter and the accented letter appears in the file. For example:
The third and fourth keyboard layouts are for typing Yoruba. One keyboard supports the OpenType features built into the font and requires OpenOffice.org Writer version 3.0, Microsoft Word 2007, Word 2003, or another component of Microsoft Office 2007 or 2003 (except PowerPoint 2003, which is not compatible), InDesign CS4, or QuarkXPress 8.02. The other Yoruba keyboard uses deadkey input, allowing it to work with any Unicode-compatible application. Both keyboards are designed for easy input of Yoruba.
The fifth and sixth keyboard layouts are for typing English and other Latin 1 languages supported by the fonts. One keyboard supports the OpenType features built into the font and works only with OpenOffice.org 3.0, Word 2007, Word 2003, or InDesign CS4, as a companion to the AfroRomanLS OT and YorubaLSU OT keyboards. The other English keyboard uses dead key input, allowing it to work with any Unicode-compatible application; it is a companion layout to the AfroRomanLS Deadkey and YorubaLSU Deadkey keyboards.
Users can easily switch between keyboard layouts at any time using a keyboard shortcut or their mouse. Detailed instructions and printable keyboard layout charts showing all keystrokes are included in the product.
(Note: The three OT keyboards do not install into Windows NT4. Windows NT users will be fully supported by the three dead key keyboard layouts.)
Windows System Requirements
- Operating Systems
- Requires Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, 2000, or NT 4.0.
- Any Unicode-compatible application, such as Microsoft Word 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003, 2002, 2000, or 97, is compatible. The free LibreOffice, and OpenOffice.org Writer, version 3.0 are compatible. Adobe® InDesign®, QuarkXPress 7.0 and above, and Microsoft Publisher are compatible.
- Non-Unicode-compatible applications such as QuarkXPress 6.5 and older, PageMaker, FrameMaker, and WordPerfect (tested through version 12) are not compatible.
- Microsoft Office 2013, 2010, 2007 or 2003, LibreOffice, OpenOffice.org 3.0, InDesign CS4, or QuarkXPress 8.02 is required to use the included AfroRomanU OT and YorubaLSU OT keyboard layouts for the most intuitive input order (letter-accent-accent). Users of any other Unicode-compatible application are fully supported by the AfroRomanU and YorubaLSU Deadkey keyboard layouts, which provide dead key input (accent-letter). All keyboard layouts provide full access to all letters and diacritics in the fonts; they differ only in input method. (Note that Office 2010, 2007 and 2003 only install into Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP or 2000 SP3 or later.)
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 (included in Microsoft Office 2003) is not compatible with AfroRomanU fonts. All text is changed to the Arial font, whether typed with the keyboard, input using Insert Symbol, or pasted from Word using the Windows clipboard. PowerPoint 2003 users should type their text in Word or another Unicode-compatible application, and save the text as a graphic for import into PowerPoint. Users can also use WordArt to create their text. To do this in PowerPoint go to Insert, Picture, WordArt, and type your text, formatting it as desired. Alternatively, users can type directly into PowerPoint using our non-Unicode AfroRoman fonts. (PowerPoint 2007 is compatible with AfroRomanU fonts. Versions before PowerPoint 2003 have not been tested for compatibility.)
- Printer: The fonts will print to any Windows printer at the highest quality allowed by your printer.
- Documentation: All documentation, including a User's Manual and Keyboard Layout Charts (showing placement of the characters on the keys), is in Adobe Acrobat™ PDF or Microsoft Word format, and is installed into the Windows Start menu for easy access. Users may view the documentation on screen or print it, using Acrobat Reader, available free online if you do not already have it.
- The AfroRoman Converter is available to convert AfroRoman (ASCII-encoded) Word files to the AfroRomanU font.

AfroRoman in Unicode for Macintosh
AfroRoman in Unicode for Macintosh includes four keyboard layouts. The keyboards are phonetic, based on the US keyboard, and allow easy input of all characters and diacritics supported by the fonts.
The first keyboard layout (called the AfroRomanLS OT layout) takes advantage of the OpenType layout features built into the fonts for the most logical, intuitive input possible. Input order is letter, accent, accent. The letter with its associated diacritics is built up automatically as you type, with all diacritics perfectly spaced. This keyboard layout requires the Mellel word processor or InDesign CS5 (see System Requirements). The included keyboard chart shows exactly what keystroke the user must type.
The second keyboard (YorubaLSU OT) also takes advantage of the OpenType features in the fonts, and is designed for easy typing of Yoruba. It also requires the Mellel word processor or InDesign CS5.
The third keyboard layout (called AfroRomanLS Deadkey) works with any Unicode-compatible application and uses deadkey input to type letters with their associated diacritics. The user first types the deadkey (representing the accent) then the letter, and the accented letter appears in the file.
The fourth keyboard (YorubaLSU Deadkey) supports the Yoruba language, and also uses deadkey input.
Detailed instructions and a printable keyboard layout chart showing all keystrokes are included in the product.
Macintosh System Requirements
- Operating Systems
- Requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher.
- Any Unicode-compatible application will support the deadkey keyboards.
- The AfroRomanLS OT and YorubaLSU OT keyboards require Mellel or InDesign CS5.

See samples of all typestyles.
AfroRoman in Unicode is available in five typestyles (Times-, Helvetica-, Garamond-, Palatino-, and Zapf Chancery-styles). Below are samples in each typestyle demonstrating many of the special characters in the fonts that are needed to type African languages. There also are links to popup windows showing samples of the Igbo, Twi, Ewe, Yoruba, Lingala, and Ateso languages, followed by large samples that will show all of the accented character combinations supported by these fonts, including the accented vowels and consonants not shown below. In addition, you will see samples of the bold, italic, and bold-italic weights of the fonts (except AfroRomanChanU, which is plain only). These links will each open in a new (popup) browser window, because the samples are very large and will open slowly over a dial-up connection. Please be sure to look at the additional samples of these beautiful and unique fonts.

AfroRoman - For a non-Unicode version of AfroRoman, available for both Windows and Macintosh, see AfroRoman. The non-Unicode font is not interchangeable with AfroRoman in Unicode, but contains a font with the same typestyle, covering most the same languages, which will work in non-Unicode applications, such as QuarkXPress 6.5 and older, PageMaker, FrameMaker, and WordPerfect. Both Unicode and non-Unicode versions of AfroRoman may be installed on your system (since they have different file and font names) and may even be used in the same files. They are not, however, interchangeable. (You cannot type text with one font, highlight the text, and change it to the other font.)
