    I have downloaded some of these fonts to use in Office Word. They appear in the fonts menu, but when one writes, they do not appear as Tibetan signs, but normal occidental fonts. How to make them work? Thank you.

      hi Ernesto — sorry the fonts aren’t working for you. We don’t have the capability here to advise on that, sorry! Although … one thought i have is, are you sure you selected Tibetan keyboard input?

      Best would be find other people who are using Tibetan fonts on MSWindows. And do a Web search. One good resource that i know of is Digital Tibetan. And there is a page there for Tibetan Editing on Windows .
      Thanks for your comment! I added this info to the page in case it helps others in future.

      Hope this helps!

          It works for me when I select the input keyboard in Tibetan. When the keyboard is set to English, Open Office will display English letters; when it’s set to Tibetan, Open Office will allow me to type in Tibetan. What you do is you go to system preferences > keyboard > input sources. There you select the plus sign at the bottom left. Scroll down to Tibetan and add it. Now when you close it, you can toggle to Tibetan up on the right in the status bar, where it also displays the time and day and battery status etc.

          You are quite welcome.

          > I do have Apple Macintosh.
          duh. i made assumption 🙂
          Hopefully by now you found Digital Tibetan’s Mac page:
          http://digitaltibetan.org/index.php/Tibetan_Editing_on_macOS
          You can also search on the Web and on YouTube

          Mac was handling non-English text input before anybody else, so it should be pretty easy to make it work once you find the right how-to.

          best,
