Installing Alaskool's free Inupiaq Font on a PC running Windows 95/98

You might want to print these instructions to have them handy as you install the Iñupiaq font.

After you have downloaded the font (inupn___.ttf) and saved it to your hard disk (remember what folder you saved it in):

  1. Click on Start Menu
  2. Select Settings then Control Panel
  3. In Control Panel click on the Fonts folder. A page showing all the fonts installed on your computer appears (c:\windows\fonts).
  4. In the c:\windows\fonts window, click on the File Menu and select Install New Font. You'll get a File Open type screen called Add Fonts.
  5. Select the Drive and Find the folder where you saved inupn___.ttf. After you click on that folder, inupn___.ttf should appear in the List of Fonts as Inupiaq Normal (True Type). Click once on this font then click on OK.
The Iñupiaq font is now installed on your computer so you can view Iñupiaq materials on the Native Studies Curriculum site.

Check Font Installation

The Iñupiaq font is also now available on your computer to use with your word processing programs or any other software that recognizes fonts. Any PC or Mac computer with the Iñupiaq font installed can share documents using this font and the words will appear correctly. If documents created with the Iñupiaq font are viewed on a computer without the font installed, other characters will be substituted for certain Iñupiaq characters so that text will appear incorrectly.
