Learning to read takes books. Learning to read well, and developing a love of reading, takes lots of books. Books at all different skill levels. But how are low-literacy language communities ever to get all those books in their language? They can do it with Bloom.
Bloom uses collections of "shell books" that come with multiple source languages. Read the ones you understand, type in a translation in your language, and you're done!
KeymanWeb enables users to type in any language on their website, regardless of the hardware and software installed. No downloads or installation are necessary - users simply select the required language and keyboard layout and begin typing. The built-in On Screen Keyboard display provides both a reference to the keyboard layout and an alternative method of entering text by clicking with the mouse, allowing even those users who are unfamiliar with the layout to input text quickly and easily.
A basic need to do any language work on the computer is a font that will display the needed characters. Fonts that come with your operating system may have a certain number of characters already, but the SIL fonts frequently have a wider variety of characters.
The Latin/Cyrillic fonts differ mostly in the typeface. Charis, Doulos and Gentium are serif fonts. Andika is a sans-serif typeface designed for new readers with easily distinguished letter forms.
