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.

Modified Fonts for Special Uses

In addition to the font subsets described above, some modified Andika fonts are available for a specific region or purpose:

  • Africa (Mali)
  • Americas
  • Eurasia
