    Joe Speroni asked:

    I'm trying to scan a Latin text that uses a bar over the vowels to indicate
    long sounds. Do these characters exist in Unicode?

    If so, would anyone know from where a Windows XP font containing these five
    characters could be download?


    Yes, they are all present in the Latin Extended-A Unicode range.

    You do not need to download any fonts if you have Windows XP.

    These characters are present in the WGL4 character set, and so they can be
    found in the core fonts (Arial, Courier New and Times New Roman) and also in
    Arial Black, Century, Comic Sans MS, Georgia, Impact, Trebuchet MS and
