How LaserYukon in Unicode OpenType Fonts Work

How LaserYukon in Unicode OpenType Fonts Work

bulletLaserYukon in Unicode fonts include OpenType™ layout features. OpenType font technology extends the ability of fonts to support international character sets by allowing greater typographic control over letters and their associated accents. OpenType allows composite forms of accented letters to be input, built up, and properly positioned as the letter and its accents are typed by the user. Combined with the Linguist's Software keyboard software, this provides unparalleled ease of use, intuitive input methods, and beautiful printed output. The information that follows on this page will show you the wide range of characters supported by the font and the simple input method provided by our included keyboard software.

(OpenType fonts require the use of certain Operating Systems and applications. Be sure you read the System Requirements for Windows or Macintosh, further down the page, before you order.)

bulletAll vowels (Aa, Ee, Ii, Oo, Uu, Yy) with all accent combinations are supported.

All vowels with all accents are supported.

bulletOther special characters for Athapaskan languages are included.

Special characters used in Athapaskan languages are supported.

bulletPlus Kaktovik Numerals in two forms. The first row shows numerals with bold top strokes, and the second row shows numerals with equal strokes. Input of either form is very simple.

Kaktovik numerals included in LaserYukon in Unicode for Windows and Macintosh

bulletTyping accented letters is easy and intuitive. Just type the letter and then the accent key. LaserYukon in Unicode includes two keyboard layout charts showing how to type every letter and accent.

Typing accented letters is easy and intuitive.

Examples of typing accented letters

bulletSee the keyboard layout charts again to see how easy it is to type these accented letters. The final example above would be typed: a, shift+apostrophe, apostrophe, slash. All three accents are available using the little finger on the right hand. This makes learning how to build up accent combinations very easy. You will soon be touch-typing!
