Typing KK phonics on a computer


#1

I write a lot of my own teaching materials and would like to be able to type the symbols for KK phonics.
A search on the internet proved fruitless.
Do I need to buy some software? If so, which program? Or is it possible to download them from the internet? My computer uses Windows 2000 (Chinese-language version).

I have the SIL 93 IPA fonts installed on my W2K machine, and recently used them successfully to complete an assignment requiring IPA characters. I never used KK or paid any attention to it, so I don’t know if this helps, but I would imagine KK uses a subset of the IPA character set. I have just been to SIL.org, and can’t find where the download is ! I did a google search at the time. The filename for the download is silipa93.exe and the fonts can then be installed, and appear on the Fonts pull down box in Word. If you can’t find a link to the file post again and I’ll see if I can send it to you.

Aha ! Found it: sil.org/computing/fonts/ipareadme.html

It’s also at: linguistics.ucla.edu/people/ … urePad.htm although I don’t know what Feature Pad is…

Found the site and I’m in the process of downloading. Thanks a lot.
