Font Subsets

SIL’s Non-Roman Script Initiative has created very comprehensive fonts for Latin and Cyrillic character sets. Andika is a very large font that covers just about every need we know about in the Latin and Cyrillic world. Now, in the age of mobile devices and web usage, there is a need for fonts that are small and compact.

We have provided subsets for Africa, Americas, Asia/Pacific, Europe/Eurasia, Vietnam, Phonetic, Cyrillic (Basic) and Cyrillic Extended. With the exception of the Phonetic font, the font subsets are intended for orthographic use only. We have not put anything in the other subsets for phonetic, transliteration, or transcription use. For those purposes, use the Phonetic subset.

For more information and downloads see: SIL Font Subsets.

Special Interest Derivative Unicode Fonts

Special Interest fonts have been modified for use with a specific purpose or in a specific region (created using TypeTuner Web). There are Andika derivative fonts available here for:

  • Africa (Mali)
  • Americas
  • Eurasia
