"For years now I've loved your fonts - they're simply the best. Nothing
on the market, whether free or for purchase, comes close. Thanks so
much, looks great! I always have loved your fonts and resources!"
Dr. Ronald L. Giese, Desert Springs Church, Albuquerque, NM, USA
"I first bought Macintosh fonts from Linguist's Software at least 15
years ago, and I was immediately impressed with their quality and used
them for years with no problems whatsoever. When I switched to the Windows
platform a few years ago, I tried several different sorts of fonts, but
none of them were comparable in quality and ease of use to your products.
My initial purchase of LaserHindi Sanskrit a few days ago only served to
confirm once again that fonts from Linguist's Software are in a class by
themselves. (May I also compliment you on the excellent user's manuals
that you produce; I'm glad that your company is willing to buck the
minimalist trend in the industry and continue produce well-written,
well-produced, very comprehensive [PDF] manuals.) A satisfied

Vidhyanand Jaikarran, Queens Village, NY
"Wonderful fonts! Best wishes, and thanks for your great work and
your great fonts."
Mindy Rosenblatt, Santa Barbara, CA
"The Sanskrit and transliteration fonts from Linguist Software
have been constructed with incredible intelligence. The number of
consonant combinations leaves nothing to be desired - everything you want
is there. The fonts are crisp and clear. Using the software is easy, and
quickly becomes intuitive, and the handy keyboard chart is easy to refer
to. Within a short time, I was able to type Devanagari almost as quickly
as typing English. Amazing! And the company provides excellent and
friendly tech support, too. Many thanks to Linguist Software. I am glad to
refer teachers and students."
Mindy Rosenblatt, creator of a website for learning Sanskrit, Santa
