Let’s talk font! 💻
🧑🏽💻 If you spend time working on computers, you may know how tricky it can be to find fonts compatible with the special characters and syllabics in Indigenous languages.
✨We wanted to let you know about the BC Sans font, which has been designed to properly support special characters and syllabics found in First Nations languages in B.C.
⌨️ This font is open-source and can be downloaded for free on the Government of B.C.’s website.
If you’re typing on your phones, don’t forget about our FirstVoices.com keyboard apps available at https://www.firstvoices.com/content/apps
(This means that autocorrect hopefully won’t keep autocorrecting an Indigenous name or word to something random and NOT WHAT YOU MEANT.)
