Hi ya,

 

  This is a licensing question really.

 

  Is it permitted to install the Yehudit font which ships with Windows Accordance, for general use on Windows, so for example it could be use in LibreOffice documents ? I now that this was the way fonts were installed on Mac some versions ago. But I cannot find any categorical statement to the effect one way or the other, though perhaps some clause can be interpreted to restrict or permit, or I am missing it.

 

Thx

D

We have not been able to create a Windows compatible version of Yehudit. I am gratified that you want to use it, but it works only inside Accordance.

 

We still hope to create a  Unicode font that incorporates our carefully designed characters, but we need to find someone who knows modern fonts and these languages, not as easy task.

Have you considered the people who developed SBL fonts? They certainly have experience in this area.

Ok so this is where I 'fess up to having already tried it. I have been able to get it to appear in LibreOffice on Windows. I have not been able to do what I want with it yet but that is likely due to other issues. I have been looking to use it to enable PDF conversion to doc format in multi-lingual documents, which have used this font - such documents having come from Mac of course. At the moment I am trying to work through the issues (and this is just one) of PDF conversion (with and without OCR in multiple languages depending upon the document involved) in order to find a path to user tools and other uses. Of course I am also interested in multi-platform solutions hence the question.

 

So I'm puzzled about what does not work ? I have not for example tried to use it with a keyboard mapping so perhaps I would not be able to type.

 

In any case, if this is a license violation let me know and I will cease the experiments in this direction. In the end I am not even sure I need this but figured I would ask given that fonts are licensed items.

 

Thx

D

It is not a licensing issue, it's that we use the high ASCII characters that are not supported on Windows.
