A big challenge in sharing digital information around the world is “tofu” – the blank boxes that appear when a computer or website isn’t able to display text: â¯. Tofu can create confusion, a breakdown in communication, and a poor user experience.
Five years ago we set out to address this problem via the Noto – a.k.a. “No more tofu” – font project. Today, Google’s open-source Noto font family provides a beautiful and consistent digital type for every symbol in the Unicode standard, covering more than 800 languages and 110,000 characters.
A single font with a uniform style covering 110000 characters – this is quite impressive.
