Five TrueType® and Type-1 hinted, scalable Syriac font with vowels:
EEstrangelo, JacobiteLS, NestorianLS, AramaicLS and AramaicDot, for writing
Eastern, Western and Modern Syriac. The keyboard is arranged as far as possible like an English typewriter, 'A' sound on A key, etc.
All 31 vowel points and accents are automatic overstrikes so they may be placed in any
order over any symbol. Includes User's Manual, key charts, keycap sticker sheet, and Word
for Windows® Right-to-Left Macro, for line-by-line right to left input of Syriac in the
US (English) version of Word for Windows. Includes User's Manual, Keyboard Layout Chart(s), ANSI Tables, and
keycap sticker sheet.
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

Here's what others are saying about LaserSyriac:
"Thank you for your quality product. I always refer people to your site
whenever they are looking for quality products. You may certainly use my
testimony of the superior quality of Linguist's Software fonts. Thanks!"
Thomas A. Howe, Ph.D., Professor of Bible and Biblical Languages, Southern
Evangelical Seminary, Charlotte, NC
"Thank you for your help. The fonts are beautiful. What I liked the most
in your fonts was partly their high fidelity to historical forms of writing, and
partly the fact that they, unlike all other available Syriac fonts, come
perfectly in small (10p, 12p) sizes on the screen."
Professor Tamas Sajo, Central European University, Budapest, Hungary
"I have installed the Jacobite font and have been using it with great
success. I compliment you on your package. I have just completed an article for
the Irish Biblical Studies using your software."
Dr. Jeremy Moiser, Perthshire, UK
"Just now I have installed your Estrangelo and Jacobite fonts. All
right. I finished some weeks ago a long article on the origins of ancient
Armenian writing and literature, and some Syriac characters were missing. Now
all is in order. Thank you very much."

"Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia
