extended smart Unicode Latin/Greek font family for literacy
Andika ("Write!" in Swahili) is a sans serif, Unicode-compliant font
designed especially for literacy use, taking into account the needs of
beginning readers. The focus is on clear, easy-to-perceive letterforms that
will not be easily confused with one another.
A sans serif font is preferred by some literacy personnel for teaching
people to read. Its forms are simpler and less cluttered than some serif
fonts can be. For years, literacy workers have had to make do with fonts
that were available but not really suitable for beginning readers and
writers. In some cases, literacy specialists have had to tediously cobble
together letters from a variety of fonts in order to get the all of
characters they need for their particular language project, resulting in
confusing and unattractive publications. Andika addresses those issues.
After receiving many insightful comments on the Design Review and Basic fonts,
Andika's final letterforms have been refined with alternate shapes still
available for some characters. This font now contains the same character set
as Charis SIL and Doulos SIL.
It provides OpenType and Graphite features like smart code for diacritic
placement. It supports recent additions to Unicode and the SIL PUA, and
character assignments are updated to conform to Unicode 5.1
