Greek Font Issues


There are many free Classical Greek fonts on the web. But they require a keyboard layout utility to make the typing of accents and breathings easier.
  • PC:  For directions on installing Greek fonts and keyboards, see Jeffrey Rusten's Unicode Classical Greek page. He suggests a free keyboard utility: Keyman and a popular shareware, Antioch ($50). In addition to the many fonts listed above, there is the option to use Palatino Linotype (Unicode) which comes pre-installed in Windows 2000 and later.
  • MAC:  The best free keyboard utility for Mac is SophoKeys. After download and installation, go into "International" in the system preferences and check the boxes for Sophokeys Polytonic Greek.  In OS 10.4 and later, if you use a unicode font such as Times, you should be able to switch back and forth between keyboard layouts (US and Sophokeys) and type a paper with Greek in it that can be e-mailed and read by others without installing special fonts.  Typing of accents follows standard Beta Code 
  • For a simple introduction, including free Greek fonts and instructions, see the TLG website.
  • If you don't want to download fonts, buy keyboard layouts and need something more immediate, Jeffrey Rusten's page also offers a free online inputter, that you can cut and paste into a paper.
  • For more complete information, and access to the widely used (but not free) Greekkeys software, see the APA web site.
Other useful links:
  • To obtain the unicode charts for the Greek and Greek Extended character sets, see the TLG chart.
  • To type longs and shorts on Roman characters, activate the US Extended keyboard and type option-a for macron (or option-b for breve) before you type the vowel.
  • Chris Blackwell offers a downloadable beta code converter for Mac and a SuperGreek style keyboard (sensibly laid out for typing quickly) for Unicode fonts.
