Cree Fonts – Quick Installation Guide (view the full page by clicking here)
Two (2) things are required in your operating systems in order to type in Cree syllabics: (1) both a font (for the different character shapes) and (2) a keyboard (providing an input method of typing those shapes). Today’s standards require Unicode fonts.
To learn the syllabics and to see the mapping between the roman and syllabic orthographies , view the Syllabics Chart (requires Adobe Flash)-complete with spoken sounds (download it here)
Most people today type using the roman keyboard where each cree character corresponds to a series of roman characters on the QWERTY keyboard. Some people still use the creeboard where each cree character corresponds to only key (on the QWERTY keyboard)
Keyman Desktop is now our recommended keyboarding application on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS & Android
NB: Keyman application supports multiple languages so please makes sure to download the keyboard via the link East Cree (roman to syllabic) keyboard, Cree board or language codes crl crj
If you just need a syllabic font you can download our BJCree Uni font files.
