Discussion space on Hausa fonts & keyboards
Sep 2, 2001
I just started a discussion forum that may be of interest at Quick Topic for the specialized topic of "Hausa charsets & keyboards." It was prompted by a question on how to set up keyboards for Hausa, but is meant to cover related topics such as fonts. The focus of discussion is Hausa, but since many languages in West Africa use extended character sets and even have certain special characters in common with Hausa, it may be of interest to anyone working on language localization in/for the region.
