This font is also available in the SIL software repository for Ubuntu. Users can subscribe to this software repository and get current versions and updates automatically. Currently the Ubuntu version is 5.000.

Charis SIL is also available through the TypeTuner Web service, which allows you to choose among the smart font features and download a font with those features preset. This enables them to work in many applications that do not make use of Graphite or OpenType Stylistic Sets.

See Release Notes for a list of the changes made to this version of the font.

See Charis SIL FAQ for answers to questions you may have.

Font Subsets

SIL’s Non-Roman Script Initiative has created very comprehensive fonts for Latin and Cyrillic character sets. Charis SIL 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 Charis SIL derivative fonts available here for:

  • Africa (Mali)
  • Americas
  • Eurasia
  • Literacy and Literacy Compact
