Glyph Basic is a hieroglyphic TrueType font of about 800 signs, roughly based on the set presented in A.H. Gardiner's Egyptian Grammar. Because of its size, given the fact that a TrueType font can only hold a maximum of 255 signs, the collection of signs is subdivided into 4 different font files. To be able to use the font you need to install all of them in your system through the FONTS option of the Windows Control Panel.

 

The position of the individual signs in each font has no particular relation to certain key-strokes. We simply tried to store as many signs in each font file as possible. All signs can be addressed from your Windows application by selecting one of the Glyph Basic fonts, pressing the ALT-key and simultaneously typing the numerical numbers of the signs wanted. You can look up their numbers using the Charmap utility that comes with the Microsoft Windows system. Some signs are located under keys on your keyboard, so just press some keys to find out where they are.

 

The hieroglyphic fonts "Glyph Basic" are freeware but NOT public domain. The Centre for Computer-aided Egyptological Research (Utrecht University, The Netherlands) holds all the rights to the font. You may use the font for any publication purpose, but you may NOT modify it in any way (including changing the ASCII or ANSI code of the characters), and you may not build another font based on it.
