Font family designed for literacy use

Description

Andika ("Write!" in Swahili) is a sans serif, Unicode-compliant font designed especially for literacy use, taking into account the needs of beginning readers. The focus is on clear, easy-to-perceive letterforms that will not be easily confused with one another.

A sans serif font is preferred by some literacy personnel for teaching people to read. Its forms are simpler and less cluttered than some serif fonts can be. For years, literacy workers have had to make do with fonts that were available but not really suitable for beginning readers and writers. In some cases, literacy specialists have had to tediously cobble together letters from a variety of fonts in order to get the all of characters they need for their particular language project, resulting in confusing and unattractive publications. Andika addresses those issues.

Four fonts from this typeface family are included in this release:
    * Andika Regular
    * Andika Bold
    * Andika Italic
    * Andika Bold Italic

Webfont versions and HTML/CSS examples are also available.

The full font sources are publicly available at https://github.com/silnrsi/font-andika An open workflow is used for building, testing and releasing.
