LaserIPA for Windows

Professional-quality, hinted, scalable fonts in both ATM®-compatible, Type 1 and TrueType® formats: IPAKielSeven, IPAExtras, IPAHighLow, IPAKiel, IPAsans, PhoneticOx, PhoneticOxII, PhoneticOxSans, and PhoneticOxSansII. The IPAKielSeven font includes all currently-approved IPA symbols and diacritical marks and is provided in plain and bold styles. The IPAKiel font contains the former standard IPA character set. The diacriticals in these fonts overstrike any symbol in any combination with other overstrikes. All diacriticals in IPAKielSeven have corresponding raised positions to go over ascenders, and lowered positions to go under descenders, in the IPAHighLow font, which is also provided in plain and bold. The IPAExtras font is a companion to IPAKielSeven and contains characters not found in the IPA-approved or Kiel-Convention-approved character sets, and which are either obsolete or were never IPA-approved, but which are useful to some users. It is provided in plain and bold styles. IPASupplement is a serif font containing supplemental characters and symbols and is provided in plain only. IPAsans is a sans serif font with an older IPA character set preceding the Kiel Convention and is provided in plain only. PhoneticOx (a Times-style font) contains phonetic symbols used in the Oxford English Dictionary. PhoneticOxSans is a sans serif (Helvetica-style) version. PhoneticOxII includes characters used in the Oxford English Dictionary, 2nd Ed., and the OED CD version. PhoneticOxSansII is a sans serif (Helvetica-style) version.

System Requirements: The TrueType® fonts install into Microsoft® Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, or NT, and work with all Windows 7-, Vista-, XP-, 2000-, and NT-compatible applications that allow the user to select fonts from a font menu. (A previous version for Windows Me, 98, or 95, and a custom version compatible with Windows 3.1 is available by request.) The product includes a User's Manual, keyboard layout chart(s), and Character Code Table(s) showing every character in the font(s). The included keyboard driver(s) allows access to four characters per key (instead of the normal two) and alternate keyboard layouts. All documentation is in PDF format, available on the Windows Start menu, and can be viewed and/or printed using Adobe Reader. The fonts will print to any printer at the highest quality allowed by your printer.

A custom version (fonts only) is available for Linux, but Linux users must provide alternate keyboard input for characters in the extended character set. If you are ordering for Linux be sure to select the Linux box on the Order Form.

Here's what others are saying about LaserIPA Here's what others are saying about LaserIPA:

"I have used a lot of different fonts, both for Macintosh and Windows, during last 25 years, and - as far as linguistic fonts are concerned - I have not found better fonts than yours. As a matter of fact, I have to say that both your Windows and Mac LaserIPA fonts are excellent."
Prof. Dr. Ljubisa Rajic, Department of Scandinavian Studies, Faculty of Philology, University of Belgrade, Beograd, Serbia

"Thank you for your beautiful fonts. You can of course quote my words: that's the truth!"
Jean Lathion, Collonge-Bellerive, Switzerland

"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

"The LaserIPA fonts have been of immeasurable value in my work since 1992, and I am very thankful for them and for their new versions."
Prof. Dr. Ljubisa Rajic, University of Belgrade, Serbia

"All your products are really beautiful in addition to being functional. My heartiest congratulations! I am absolutely amazed by your talent and genius. My very best regards and gratitude,"
Michael F. Pajak, Mount Laurel, NJ

"I have used Linguist's Software fonts for twenty years now and have always been pleased. They are a genuine help in my ministry."
Dr. Judith L. Hill, Evangelical School of Theology, Bangui, Central African Republic

"I could barely have survived without 'IPA Kiel' over the last eleven years. Over the years I've much appreciated all that you have done and have been singing the praises of LaserIPA. In my early computer days, I actually designed lots of fonts myself; quite soon I discovered your fonts — I never developed another font!...Installation was very straightforward. Very best wishes."
Professor Ian Press, University of St. Andrews, Scotland

"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 purchase 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 customer..."
Jack Hagge, Iowa State University, Program in Linguistics

"LaserIPA works fine for us."
Dr. Baldur Neuber, Germany

"Thanks for doing a great job on the IPAKielSeven documents [you converted for my professor into the new font format for Word 97/2000]."
Ron at the University of California, Irvine

"Thank you very much for your full and illuminating answer. A very professional attitude indeed. I am ordering LaserIPA right now."
Anne Przewozny, Lardy, France

"Thank you so much for the quick reply....I have just tried to type the tone marks, and it works! I really appreciate your assistance."
Margaret M. Yan, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN
