This web site presents one reference glyph and basic information for each of the world’s writing systems. It is the first step of the Missing Scripts Project, a long-term initiative that aims to identify writing systems which are not yet encoded in the Unicode standard. As of today, there are still 131 scripts not yet encoded in Unicode. So they can’t be used on the computer — yet.

The Missing Scripts Project is a joint effort of

Atelier National de Recherche Typographique (ANRT), Nancy, France

Institut Designlabor Gutenberg (IDG), Hochschule Mainz, Germany

Script Encoding Initiative (SEI), Department of Linguistics, UC Berkeley, USA
