Bruce W. Neely, Alexandria, VA

"I am so impressed with the beauty of the fonts!"
Christine Calfas, Portland, OR

"Both visually and in print, in one word, it works! The optical results of the fonts is VERY satisfactory. Thank you very much! Your devoted"
PD Dr. Xavier Tremblay, Universität zu Köln

"I am quite pleased with your wonderful fonts. On my Macintosh machines I have been using your Greek and Hebrew fonts for over ten years. It is for me, a New Testament scholar, a great pleasure to use your really beautiful fonts. This time I bought the same fonts for Windows. I'm equally happy with them."
Prof. Ichiro Sudo, Seinan Gakuin University, Fukuoka, Japan

"The LaserGreek II fonts are the BEST fonts ever created."
Michael Straus, Columbia University, New York

"We are very happy with the Greek and Hebrew fonts recently purchased from you. We are using these fonts to publish our journal, Reformed Theological Review."
Sandra Searle, Administrator, Reformed Theological Review, Australia

"The Linguist's Software Greek fonts work without any glitches. They are beautiful! Really lovely fonts!"
Professor T. David Gordon, Grove City College, Grove City, Pennsylvania

"Superb ... elegantly intelligent while easy to use. Bravo! [I am] utterly delighted ... vastly superior to any mode of entering Greek I have previously tried (nearly everything possible: Lettrix, Turbofonts, Ibycus, Nota Bene, WordPerfect, etc)."
Prof. John Boswell (deceased), Yale University

"I am a great admirer of your Greek fonts. You have a wonderfully elegant keyboard design -- definitely superior to your competitors, including Greekkeys. Thank you for bringing the old SuperGreek up to date."
Carrie Vandervelde, Department of Classical Studies, University of Richmond, VA

"Above all, congratulations on a successful Greek font layout that actually works and encourages Greek typesetting! Philip B. Payne and his staff have done an excellent job in thinking out how to approach Greek."
Gale Akins, Humble Hills Press, Kalamazoo, MI

"Your Greek fonts are really perfect"
Nikolaos Trunte, Bonn, Germany

"I'm not retained by Linguist's Software (and certainly not by GreekKeys, a cumbersome system that drove me nearly insane when I tried it); but I would like to say, and not for the first time, that for me LaserGreek, in its successive editions, is so far superior to every other Greek font system, in every way, that I can't imagine why it hasn't swept the market. Minimal changes to the American keyboard, and those supremely rational. The virtual abolition of all cumbersome "grouping". Accents, breathings, &c. independent and postpositive. Easy switching between fonts. The sum is that I can type LaserGreek just as fast as Roman--and could do so only a week after installation. What other system can offer that without requiring a large effort of memorization followed by lengthy practice? The benefits were enormous ... sigmas and correlation of platforms is wonderful. I'm both a classicist and a professional author, and use LaserGreek all over the place, for books, articles, editions, you name it."
Peter Green
Professor Emeritus of Classics, U. of Texas at Austin
Editor, Syllecta Classica

"Everything is installing as it should, and I am absorbing all the brilliant things you've done with this software.
