Free Bangla Fonts is a project dedicated for creating Free, high quality, completely Unicode compliant OpenType Bengali fonts. This project aims to be the central resource for getting and developing Free Bangla fonts. The initial aim of this project is to release a full set of Bangla fonts that supports all the major Bangla juktakhars (conjuncts).

We also plan to convert the other existing Free Bangla (non Unicode compliant) fonts into Unicode compliant Bengali OpenType™ fonts. The project works as as a sub-project of the Ankur - Bangla in GNU/Linux and FLOSS initiative.

Here are some key features of "Free Bangla Fonts":

Standards compliance
We aim to be 100% compliant with the existing Unicode 4.1.0 standard. We also strictly follow the Microsoft OpenType™ specifications, and we aim to release a font which would be compliant with the juktakhar standards released by the Bangladesh Bangla Academy and the Pashchim Banga Bangla Academy.

High Quality
We aim for quality, in terms of good looking glyphs and as well as in terms of extensive OpenType™ tables which handle all the Bangla juktakshars that are in use today.

Free Software
Our policy is to work only on Free (sometimes referred to as Open Source) fonts, so that the results of our work can be freely shared by all. Free Software is about empowering users, and about granting them rights over the software they use.
