Here's what others are saying about LaserSyriac:
"I’ve used the LaserSyriac programme for many years now and have been extremely satisfied with it. The LaserSyriac upgrade installed within seconds and is perfect! Many thanks for your help and time. I produced an interlinear text, with the Syriac running right-to-left on one line with an English translation running left-to-right on the line below. The programme proved up to it! When I have changed computers, or from floppies to CDs, Phil and his team have been more than accommodating, going out of their way to solve technical problems (not of their making). All in all, I have been delighted with the product and with the after-sales service."
"Many congratulations, Philip, for the incredible font families you have created. Your fonts are really the best."
"Thank you for your quality product. I always refer people to your site whenever they are looking for quality products. You may certainly use my testimony of the superior quality of Linguist's Software fonts. Thanks!"
"Thank you for your help. The fonts are beautiful. What I liked the most in your fonts was partly their high fidelity to historical forms of writing, and partly the fact that they, unlike all other available Syriac fonts, come perfectly in small (10p, 12p) sizes on the screen."
"I have installed the Jacobite font and have been using it with great success. I compliment you on your package. I have just completed an article for the Irish Biblical Studies using your software."
"Just now I have installed your Estrangelo and Jacobite fonts. All right. I finished some weeks ago a long article on the origins of ancient Armenian writing and literature, and some Syriac characters were missing. Now all is in order. Thank you very much."
"Thanks for your super fonts! You have my permission to quote me on anything that I say about your products. They're super!"
"Great! Thank you very much."
