Free Tibetan Machine Uni font
The Tibetan & Himalayan Digital Library releases the Unicode character based Tibetan Machine Uni OpenType font for writing Tibetan, Dzongkha and Ladakhi in dbu-can script with full support for the Sanskrit combinations found in chos skad texts.
This font is based on the Tibetan Machine font originally designed and developed by Tony Duff of the Tibetan Computer Company over many years, the rights of which were purchased from him by the Trace Foundation in order to make it freely available under the terms of the Gnu General Public License.
OpenType tables and more than 2,000 additional glyphs were added to the original font by Nathaniel Garson and Christopher Fynn under the auspices of THDL. This new OpenType version of the font contains almost 4,000 glyphs and can generate over 20,000 different combinations.
