The Heiltsuk Unicode input system and keyboard are separate technologies from Heiltsuk Doulos, Heiltsuk Times or other earlier Heiltsuk-specific fonts. With the Heiltsuk Unicode keyboard, you can type Heiltsuk characters without having to install a special font. It works for most conventional software, both online (such as Twitter and Facebook) and offline (such as Word and PowerPoint), and on all operating systems.

We suggest selecting Times New Roman as your font when using the Heiltsuk Unicode as this is available on all computers and has a full character set to render Heiltsuk correctly. Further instructions for installing and typing with the Heiltsuk keyboard are provided in the installation package for Mac and Windows respectively. We are currently working on documentation for the Chrome operating system.

Please click one of the links below to download the current working version of the Heiltsuk Unicode keyboard for your operating system. A folder will then download with installation files and instructions.
