• SIL IPA keyboards (what I use for writing IPA characters and tones on Mac)

  • Keyman (common keyboard solution for PCs)


  • Doulos SIL (I primarily use Doulos SIL and its compact version for properly rendering the full range of IPA characters and diacritics in Latin-based Manding)
  • Google Noto Fonts (install the N'ko version so that you can view the script properly on your computer)


  • N'ko Text Converter (can be used to convert legacy N'ko fonts [before Unicode standardization] to the Unicode standardization AND to transliterate N'ko into a Latin-based script that preserves the tonal diacritics)
