To test font rendering on your browser/platform, obtain fonts, and view instructions on how to install or activate a font, click on a language below.

The information in the "Browser/Platforms" column shows configurations that have been tested and verified to display adequately.

LangNet uses Arial Unicode MS as its default Unicode font for Latin-based languages. This font is installed by default on most Windows computers. However, if you are seeing boxes or question marks instead of the correct letters in the sample texts below, or in the Learning Objects or Authoring Tool, please follow the instructions on how to install Arial Unicode MS on Microsoft's website.

PLEASE NOTE: Fonts for languages used in Assessment Objects only will not be listed here because they have no dependency on your computer platform or type of browser.
