LaserPaleo-Hebrew in Unicode


Ancient Hebrew Character Shapes Now Come Alive in Unicode™-encoded LaserPaleo-Hebrew!

for Windows

for Macintosh
What are others saying about these fonts? What are others saying?

 

Now you can type ancient Hebrew alphabets right to left, 
with proper line wrap and full justification.

Welcome to LaserPaleo-Hebrew in Unicode for Windows and Macintosh (LaserPaleo-HebrewU). This exciting product provides ten professional-quality Unicode-encoded TrueType® Paleo-Hebrew alphabet fonts for typing ancient Hebrew character shapes. Included in LaserPaleo-HebrewU are fonts containing the character shapes of the inscriptions found in level VI of the Arad excavations, the Gezer inscription, the Samaritan inscription, the Zakkur inscription, and the inscription in the Siloam tunnel. There is a font containing the character shapes of the Lachish letters written on potsherds, and there are three fonts containing the character shapes of Old Phoenician. Finally, while not Hebrew, included is a related font containing the character shapes of Imperial Aramaic.

Since the fonts are Unicode-encoded, users can type right to left with proper line wrap and full justification of the Hebrew text. The user may switch back and forth between Hebrew, English, and the other supported languages simply by toggling between the included Hebrew and English software keyboard drivers (keyboard resources). When you select the Hebrew keyboard, input will automatically be right to left. When you select the English keyboard, the input direction will automatically change to left to right. Users may combine ancient Hebrew with text from any other language supported by the fonts or by your computer's Operating System. All this can be done with your regular physical keyboard; you do not need to buy a special keyboard to use LaserPaleo-HebrewU fonts.

These alphabets are easy to type because the fonts are arranged phonetically, following the US keyboard as closely as possible. Also, the font layouts are compatible with the LaserHebrew® in Unicode fonts. Keyboard layout charts are provided to help you learn the layouts of the fonts.

LaserPaleo-HebrewU for Windows and LaserPaleo-HebrewU for Macintosh are compatible with each other. Documents typed with these fonts may be transferred back and forth between Windows and Macintosh with no conversion necessary as long the fonts are installed on both computers, and compatible software is used. (Please be sure you understand the System Requirements for Windows and Macintosh before you order.)
