Typing Salishan Languages

Typing Salishan Languages

Salish (Salishan) languages use a combination of special characters, characters with diacritics, and standard Latin letters with accents and multiple accents. The LaserSalish fonts support these character combinations, and the included keyboard software makes it easy to type any character combination supported by the fonts. The keyboard software supports a dead key input method. You first type a dead key representing an accent or other diacritic, and nothing appears to happen on screen. Then you type the letter you want accented and the keyboard software places the pre-composed letter with its diacritic(s) into your document. Here are a few examples of dead key input for Salish letters. In the first example below, you first type the semicolon key ( ; ) and nothing appears to happen on screen. Then you type the k and the glottalized-k is placed in your document.

Typing Salishan characters using dead key input.

The product includes a keyboard layout chart showing the location on the keyboard of all characters.

LaserSalish in Unicode – For a Unicode-encoded version of LaserSalish, available for both Windows and Macintosh, see LaserSalishU. The Unicode-encoded fonts are not interchangeable with LaserSalish in Unicode, but contain fonts with the same typestyle, covering the same languages, which are supported by Unicode-compatible applications, such as Microsoft Office, OpenOffice, LibreOffice, InDesign, and QuarkXPress 7 and newer. Both Unicode and non-Unicode versions of LaserSalish may be installed on your system (since they have different file and font names) and may even be used in the same documents. They are not, however, interchangeable (you cannot type text with one font, highlight the text, and change it to the other font) because the encodings are different.

Here's what others are saying about LaserArmenian in Unicode Here's what others are saying about LaserArmenian in Unicode:

"I recently purchased the LaserSalish for the Burke Museum. We have been tremendously satisfied with it. Since GIS programs can differ drastically from the typical (e.g., Microsoft, Adobe, etc.) programs, especially regarding data input, we were very pleasantly surprised how well the fonts worked with it."
Jacob Fisher, Burke Museum, GIS Archaeologist, Department of Anthropology, University of Washington, Seattle, WA

"I love your products!!!! They have been a great help and a blessing to me!"
