Keyman Uniscribe Manager

What is the Keyman Uniscribe Manager?

The Keyman Uniscribe Manager provides text display support for additional languages that are not supported by the operating system you are using. It can provide support for all languages supported on Windows Vista, in Windows XP, as well as other languages in the future as needed. The Keyman Uniscribe Manager extends the capabilities of the Windows component called "Uniscribe".

For example, Tibetan text display is not supported by Windows XP. Without the Keyman Uniscribe Manager, Tibetan text will appear as shown in the example on the left. With the Keyman Uniscribe Manager, text will appear correctly, as shown on the right.
