Default Installing Lao Fonts

How does it works?

I don't know without researching. If you have time feel free to provide info. Don't go off topic on this one since I want it to be an easy reference for users to use.


Here is what I know:
For Windows, you'll need to Install Unicode Keyboard in order to use your US keyboard to type in Lao.

You'll need true type Fonts. This can be found in numerous places on the internet if you search.

Here are some sites :
http://laofonts.tripod.com/
http://www.alanwood.net/unicode/fonts_windows.html#lao
http://www.wazu.jp/gallery/Fonts_Lao.html
http://lo.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E0%BA%...nicode_Support

http://www.laoscript.net/support/



And I know that LH is another good place to get the keyboard mapping file.

Anony, you would have to download all these fonts and unzipped them and store them in one folder. After you think you have enough then use the CD or Flash drive to transport them to your old pc at Wat.

There are numerous instructions on the web for different type of Windows.

Thank you Oracle.

LOL, I was trying to avoid all of this and hoping to by pass it and ask for CD rom to send to them instead. 5555555

Lets just say I'm being lazy, and the computer I'm using now don't even have Lao font. LOL

Anyway, I'll be right back and ask more question in awhile ok. Let me read thru something first.

I would wait for JF on this, I seen him use lao font here. He will know a better way.

What I suggest then it to download the all the files needed and burn it into a CD and sent it to the temple if you're not that keekarn.

Yep, I got my lao font from LH...you can save the necessary files such as 'keyboard and font installer' (instead of running it) to a folder in your hard drive; then copy the folder to a CD or 3.5 disk and transport it to the computer that you want to install the font in...

Personally, I like to use an external hard drive, just set up a folder and save all the files to it and transfer them that way...

Here's the link to the LH site... LH Lao Language

Another tips:


http://www.bailane.com/Help.aspx?sid=101


DO this first see if it works:
1. Click on the “download Saysettha OT font”
2. Save
3. Browse to C:\windows\Fonts\ and Save
4. There, now you have Saysettha OT font


Close your internet explorer. And come back in.

I've added this font to the back-end. Hope it works, cuz it works for me.

Here is my Internet Explorer settings:
On your IE menu options:
- Go to VIEW->Encoding-> Western European (ISO) is check, you can play around with this setting




- Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Fonts
and my setting:
