Keyboard Map of SPAchmim, a public domain Coptic font Created by: Jimmy Adair, Scholars Press Last modified: 19 March 1998
Description: SPAchmim exists in both Macintosh and Windows versions, both with the same character and keyboard maps. By design, all characters in the font lie between decimal 32 and 127 (20x-7Fx, 040-0177), so they should transfer without problem over the Internet. The font is designed to follow the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae encoding scheme to as great an extent as possible, with extra characters added that are not present in Greek (see here). In addition to the standard Sahidic characters, three forms of the Bohairic/Achmimic chai (corresponding to the variant forms of the glyph) are included. The composite character ti and the supralinear stroke are also included.
A few differences may exist among keyboards for some shifted keys (e.g., is " shift-' or shift-2 ?), so people with different keyboards will have to make the proper adjustments.
