Fonts and Keyboards
Below are some commonly available fonts and the associated keyboard layouts. They are provided in Zipped files to prevent damage which can occur when they are moved from one computing environment to another.
Pigiarniq This font was professionally developed by the Government of Nunavut in association with Tiro Typesetting; http://www.tiro.com and is an excellent general purpose font that uses the modern Unicode standard. Unzip the file below to obtain four versions - regular, bold, light and Italic
Nunacom U This is one of the early Unicode fonts developed by Multedata. It has largely been replaced by Pigiarniq.
Ballymun This is another Uncode Font developed by Ron Ogawa
Non Unicode Fonts
These fonts are all non standard encoding, meaning that without the specific font used to create the document, thet are unintelligible. Using a different font will produce unusable text.
With the Inuktitut Utilities developed by Multedata for the Government of Nunavut, it is possible to reliably convert from one font to another, using the Pigiarniq standard font as a common pivot point.
