WE'VE ADDED NON-ENGLISH LANGUAGE SUPPORT!
If your child is learning any of the languages below at school - or if you're a teacher of any of these languages in your classroom – all the special characters you'll need can now be found in our Beginner Regular and Thick fonts for each State. Fully compliant with Unicode 9 – so your text can be transferred to and from other Unicode fonts and you can use the same installed software keyboards that you normally use to type in the language of your choice. We also include two bonus custom Mac and Windows software keyboards Australian Aboriginal GT and Phonetic Latin GT which are
exclusive to Australian School Fonts.

including vulgar fractions using very simple keystrokes. For more info, see here.
... AND INTRODUCING OUR NEW TIGHT TEXT™ FONT FAMILIES!
Have you ever wanted to use your school fonts for normal text (letters, booklets,
documents, pupil's reports, newsletters, school website etc) but found that the
line-spacing was too wide and the letters too small? We've created a Tight
Text™ family in each State style that is exactly the same style being used
to teach handwriting but has reduced capital height, ascender
height, and descender depth so that the font works just like
any standard text font eg Arial, Times, Helvetica.*
Info on Tight Text™ language coverage here.
* Tight Text™ fonts are not intended or recommended for use in the actual teaching of handwriting in the initial & early stages.
