Two fonts are a modern handwriting typestyle and the other two fonts are a vertical typestyle commonly used in ancient texts. Keyboard software is included for easy input of syllabic forms. The fonts work in any application.

The EthiopicLS and EthiopicLSX (eXtras) fonts are a modern handwriting form commonly used today. They are provided in plain (regular), bold, italic, and bold-italic styles.

Typing Amharic (Ethiopic) Text

Typing Amharic (Ethiopic) Text

Keyboard entry uses the dead key input method. You select the included Amharic keyboard (a software keyboard driver or keyboard resource), then type following either the included keyboard layout chart or the Amharic Syllabary Chart. As you type the keyboard calls up the appropriate Amharic syllable.

Simple phonetic dead key input method for typing the Amharic Syllabary

(In the above sample, "(sp)" means "space" or "press the spacebar.")

The fonts contain the entire Ge'ez script for Amharic and Tigrinya characters. The fonts include all Ethiopic characters found in the Unicode Standard. However, the fonts have a custom ASCII encoding (not a Unicode encoding) allowing the fonts to work in virtually any application, including applications that do not support Unicode.

Unicode-encoded

Because Unicode fonts have different encodings than non-Unicode fonts, the LaserAmharic in Unicode fonts are not interchangeable with the LaserAmharic fonts. However, both Unicode and non-Unicode fonts may be installed on your system (since they have different file and font names) and may even be used in the same documents.
