Charis SIL and Doulos SIL developed by SIL are recommended. Note that Doulos SIL only includes regular typeface (no bold, no italic).

Keyboard layouts

Keyboard layouts allow input of special characters using standard keys or their combinations. We are using Tavultesoft Keyman v6.2 (only the next version, v7.0, is now available on developer's website, and is not free).

If you already have Keyman installed (version 5.0 or higher), you can just download our layouts and install them:
[Archi layout, 20 Kb] [Nganasan layout, 40 Kb] [Khnialug layout with help, 120 Kb] (see also the Alphabets section).

If you don't have Keyman installed, download the installer which will install both a free version of Keyman (v. and the keyboard layout (Archi or Khinalug). If you cannot download .exe files, use the zip archive instead.
