STEDT Font for Windows
Welcome to the first beta version of STEDT Font for Windows.
This is the first beta release of STEDT Font for Windows. This Windows TrueType font (TTF) is compatible with the present Macintosh release (5.1.2) of STEDT Font, in terms of the encoding of the "Reflex" and "Gloss" fields of the STEDT databases.
Download STEDT Font for Windows
- If your computer is running a version of the Windows operating system 3.1 or later, please download this
TTF7.zip ZIP archive.
- Decompress the downloaded ZIP archive, if it is not decompressed automatically upon download.
- When decompressed, the result is a file named "STEDT___.TTF" (without the quotes).
- Install the resulting "STEDT___.TTF" TrueType font (installation instructions below).
Installing TrueType fonts in Windows 3.1 or later versions:
- Open the Windows Control Panel by double-clicking its icon.
- Open the Fonts panel by double-clicking its icon.
- Click on the Add button. The Add Fonts Panel appears.
- Choose the appropriate disk drive from the Drives list.
- Choose the appropriate directory from the Directories list.
- Select the names of the fonts you want to install from the List of Fonts or click "Select All".
- Click "OK" to install your font(s). The Add Fonts panel closes.
- Your font is now installed. The font name will appear in the font menu in every application that has a font menu.
Keyboard Character Access
- STEDT___.TTF for Windows PC is encoded as a sequentially-ordered symbol font.
- This means that extended ASCII (Dec 128-255) characters are accessed on the keyboard by typing the ALT+0XXX key combination.
- "XXX" here stands for any three digit decimal number in the range (128-255).
- To find the decimal value of a given character, please consult either of the two files DECCHAR.txt or STEDTwin.pdf mentioned above.
- Note that pre-struck diacritics are identified in STEDTwin.pdf as having "Width: 0" (zero-width).
- For entry of special characters, you may find it easier to use a utility such as the free KeyMan 3.2, available from SIL. The latest version of the KeyMan program is a commercial product, available here.
- If you use any version of KeyMan (or any other keyboard utility) with STEDT___.TTF, please let us know.
