SIL Vai 3.2 Font Packand and Keyman keyboard (ver. 0.1)
NRSI Staff, 2007-03-09
Download "SILVaiOFL3.2.kmp", Keyman keyboard package, 583KB [1464 downloads]

This package contains the same files as SILVaiOFL3.2.zip. However, it is an installer for the Keyman keyboard as well as for the fonts. The Keyman keyboard is version 0.1.

This keyboard was developed for keyboarding the Vai Script. For guidelines on who can use Keyman and for downloading, go to:  http://www.tavultesoft.com. The “SIL Vai Script version 0.1 beta” keyboard is designed to work with the SIL Vai font which is a part of this package. This keyboard will not work with any other font since the font is an 8-bit encoding and not Unicode.

If you download this package, you must have Keyman already installed. You can just double-click SILVaiOFL3.2.kmp to install the keyboard package and font. Once installed, documentation can be found at Start / All Programs / SIL Vai Script version 0.1 beta.
