Now you can type Iban text with the beautiful character set
designed by Dunging Gunggu in any Windows or Macintosh application. LaserIban™
includes four IbanLS™ fonts (plain, bold, italic, and
bold-italic) in both TrueType® and Type 1 PostScript® font formats. The
Iban character shapes were designed by Dunging Gunggu, and have been developed
into fonts by Linguist's Software under the direction of Dr. Bromeley Philip
(Senior Lecturer, UiTM Sarawak, Malaysia). The set of characters, technically a
syllabary, contains the sounds for writing the Iban language. The LaserIban
fonts have been arranged so they will sort in Microsoft Word in the Iban order
depicted in the chart below. LaserIban fonts for Windows
and Macintosh are completely cross-platform compatible as regular Word files in
the same manner as regular English (Latin 1) fonts. When you type your Iban
document with the IbanLS font, save it normally and transfer it to any other
Windows or Macintosh computer on which the IbanLS font is installed, and it will
open and read correctly (if a compatible application such as Word is installed).
