Name        : sil-andika-fonts
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 1.0
Release     : 14.fc21
URL         : http://scripts.sil.org/Andika
Summary     : A font for literacy and beginning readers
Description :
Andika is a sans serif, Unicode-compliant font designed especially for
literacy use, taking into account the needs of beginning readers. The focus is
on clear, easy-to-perceive letterforms that will not be readily confused with
one another.

A sans serif font is preferred by some literacy personnel for teaching people
to read. Its forms are simpler and less cluttered than those of most serif
fonts. For years, literacy workers have had to make do with fonts that were
not really suitable for beginning readers and writers. In some cases, literacy
specialists have had to tediously assemble letters from a variety of fonts in
order to get all of the characters they need for their particular language
project, resulting in confusing and unattractive publications. Andika
addresses those issues.
