Bibliorum Sacrorum Graecorum Codex Vaticanus B is the only color facsimile of the oldest surviving manuscript of virtually the entire Bible in Greek. It was written about A.D. 350 and is regarded as the most important manuscript of the Greek Bible. The photographic quality and color reproduction is amazingly faithful to the original.

What others are saying What others are saying

LaserArmenian® in Unicode™ provides a professional-quality, Unicode-encoded Armenian font (ArmenianLSU) in TrueType® format, for typing the Armenian language, for transliterating Armenian into the Latin alphabet, and for typing English and west European (Latin 1) languages. The font is provided in normal (plain), bold, italic, and bold-italic forms. Included keyboard software provides four intuitive input methods. The keyboards support the Eastern Armenian standard, the Western Armenian standard, a phonetic Armenian keyboard layout (based on the US keyboard), plus an English keyboard providing access to the transliteration symbols needed to transliterate Armenian.

Be sure you read the System Requirements for Windows or for Macintosh before ordering. Order

LaserArmenian in Unicode for Windows

LaserArmenian in Unicode for Windows

LaserArmenian in Unicode for Windows includes four keyboard layouts that provide four-characters-per-key input in Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, and 2000 SP3. The keyboards support 1) the Eastern Armenian standard, 2) the Western Armenian standard, 3) a phonetic Armenian keyboard layout (based on the US keyboard), and 4) an English keyboard providing access to the transliteration symbols needed to transliterate Armenian.

Windows System Requirements:

  • bulletOperating Systems
    1. bulletRequires Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, or 2000 SP3.
    2. bullet
    3. Requires Windows complex script Supplemental Language Support in Windows XP and 2000. This requires your Windows XP or 2000 installation CD. We show you how to install this feature as part of setup. (This feature is built into Windows 10, 8, 7 and Vista and does not need to be installed.)
    4. bulletThis product will not work in any earlier version of Windows (NT/Me/98/95/3.x).
  • bulletApplications
    1. bulletAny Unicode-compatible application, such as Microsoft Word 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003, 2002, 2000, or 97 is compatible. Adobe® InDesign® and QuarkXPress 7.0 and newer are compatible. (Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 is not compatible.)
    2. bulletMicrosoft Office 2013, 2010, 2007 or Office 2003 (Word 2010, 2007 or 2003) is required to benefit from the OpenType layout features built into the fonts. These features provide automatic positioning of abbreviation overbars, and automatic positioning of the Armenian hyphen. In all other Unicode-compatible applications the abbreviation overbars must be inserted using a feature such as Word's Insert Symbol feature (one character at a time), and the Armenian hyphen may need to be positioned manually. The User's Manual describes how to do these steps, but they are automatic in Word 2010, 2007 and 2003.
    3. bulletOlder, non-Unicode applications such as Word 95 (Word 7) and Word 6 will not work with these fonts. Corel WordPerfect (any version) and Lotus Word Pro (any version) will not work with these fonts.
    4. bulletMicrosoft PowerPoint 2003 (included in Microsoft Office 2003) is not compatible with LaserArmenian in Unicode for Windows. 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 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 LaserArmenian fonts. (Earlier versions of PowerPoint have not been tested for compatibility with LaserArmenian in Unicode.)
  • bulletNotes

    2. bulletPrinter: The fonts will print to any Windows printer at the highest quality allowed by your printer.
    3. bulletDocumentation: All documentation, including a User's Manual, and Keyboard Layout Charts (showing placement of the characters on the keys), is in Adobe Acrobat™ PDF format, and is installed to 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.

Also Available

For a non-Unicode version, available for both Windows and Macintosh, see:

  • bulletLaserArmenian for Windows and Macintosh
  • bulletThe non-Unicode font in LaserArmenian is not interchangeable with LaserArmenian in Unicode. Both Unicode and non-Unicode fonts, including Unicode and non-Unicode versions of LaserArmenian, 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.
  • bulletIf your project requires you to work in software that is not Unicode-compatible, such as QuarkXPress or PageMaker, you must use the non-Unicode LaserArmenian font instead of LaserArmenian in Unicode.
  • bulletDo you have LaserArmenian (ASCII-encoded) documents you need to convert to the new Unicode-encoded fonts in LaserArmenian in Unicode? See the LaserArmenian Converter for a simple solution for converting your old documents to these new fonts. (Note: It is not possible to convert text backwards, from Unicode-encoding to the non-Unicode-encoding of LaserArmenian.)
