AfroRoman in Unicode for Windows

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.

Description of the AfroRomanLS OT keyboard layout.

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:

Example of the use of the AfroRomanLS Deadkey keyboard layout.

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

  • bulletOperating Systems
    1. bulletRequires Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, 2000, or NT 4.0.
  • bulletApplications
    1. bulletAny 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.
    2. bulletNon-Unicode-compatible applications such as QuarkXPress 6.5 and older, PageMaker, FrameMaker, and WordPerfect (tested through version 12) are not compatible.
    3. bulletMicrosoft 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.)
    4. bulletMicrosoft 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.)

LaserAmharic (non-Unicode)

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.)
