SIL Vai Font Requirements

Lorna A. Priest, 2004-07-02

Note:

These fonts are still custom (legacy) 8-bit fonts. They are not Unicode fonts. We do not recommend that you use the SIL Vai font. However, we do provide links to some Unicode resources below:

Table of Contents for this web page:

The SIL Vai fonts are not Unicode fonts. These fonts were designed for the following systems:

  • Windows 98
  • Windows 95
  • Windows 3.1

The fonts will also work in Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The keyboard has been tested in WinME and WinXP. It has not been tested on other systems, but it should work.

Windows users will also need the Keyman keyboarding utility. It is not included in the SIL Vai Fonts package and must be downloaded separately.

Both Macintosh and Windows users will need the  Free Adobe Acrobat Reader to read and print the documentation.
