AAC imageThe Adopt-a-Character Program
<> has awarded a
grant to support further development of the following three historic
scripts in the Unicode Standard:

    * Dhives Akuru, a Brahmi-based script formerly used to write the
      Maldivian language in the Maldive islands
    * Elymaic, an Aramaic-based script formerly used in the region
      southeast of the Tigris river in Iran
    * Khwarezmian, a script formerly used in the northern part of
      Uzbekistan and the adjacent areas of Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan

This grant will fund the development of proposals for encoding scripts
that can be included in the Unicode Standard. The work will be done by
Anshuman Pandey under the direction of Deborah Anderson (SEI, UC
Berkeley <>) and Rick McGowan
(Unicode Consortium <>).

/Over 100,000 characters are available for adoption
<>, to help the
Unicode Consortium’s work on digitally disadvantaged languages./
