are some freeware truetype syllabics fonts and keyboard layouts
that are available for download that I have made.
sets of Unicode fonts are available. They are Aiju and Sanna.
Aiju and Sanna fonts are Unicode compliant
fonts for Windows 2000/XP and Mac OSX that conform to the Unified
Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics (UCAS) encoding. They
can be used interchangeably with NunacomU, Pigiarniq or any
other Unicode syllabic
font that uses UCAS encoding.
main difference between them is that Aiju has the "old"
symbols with the round "donut" diacritics over them.
These old diacritics also makes the spacing between the lines
wider. Since Sanna doesn't have these old diacritics, spacing
between the lines is more compact than Aiju fonts.
Aiju was the
spirit name of my youngest sister, Eva, the baby of the family,
who left us on May 4, 2004 at the tender age of 29. May she rest
in peace and God bless her daughter.

fonts are based on the Mac Roman table and therefore only work
properly on the Mac. Both Syllabics and Roman are built into
the fonts so that the Roman and Syllabics don't get mix up like
they often do in Prosyl, Nunacom, etc. Aujaq Fonts pack comes
with its own keyboard layout for use with Mac OS 7-9.

keyboards use a Dead Key to access the dotted symbols making
them ideal for speed typing. The difference between Sannatitut
and Aijutitut is that Aijutitut can access the "old"
symbols with the round "donut" diacritics which most
people in Nunavut haven't used much since the standardization
of the writing system by Inuit Cultural Institute in 1976. Aijutitut
is best for use with Aiju fonts above & Sannatitut for Sanna

7 Bit Font Keyboards
are Mac OS X only 7 bit font keyboard layouts for use with AujaqSyl,
Nunacom and Prosyl. These keyboards are designed to address the
issue of improperly aligned dots which arise when people use
the same dot over and over for different symbols. Although each
of these fonts are created with a number of dots designed to
be used over different symbols, most people tend to use only
one dot. The result is often some dots being improperly aligned
and looking awkward and difficult to read. I only have Mac versions
at the moment.
