Variable and optional features of fonts can only be seen when using a browser that supports those features, such as a current version of Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge.

Saysettha (Version 2) is an updated font-family based on the widely-used Lao Script for Windows font Saysettha OT.

Saysettha Mai is a new font-family from Lao Script for Windows in a modern style with straight strokes as often found in primers and other recently printed materials.

SengBuhan is a new font-family from Lao Script for Windows with the curved style used traditionally for writing Lao. Two variant forms are also available, either by using Stylistic Sets 5 and 6 (see below), or as separate fonts, SengPathom and KhamBuhan.

SaysetthaMai includes the full Unicode range for Lao with Kmhmu, Lao Pali and Lao Sanskrit characters and is available as a single font and as a TrueType Collection (.ttc) or zip-archive with six stroke weights from Thin to Black in both plain and italic styles. For publishing purposes, 72 plain and italic styles with stroke weights from Thin to Black, character widths from UltraCondensed to UltraExpanded is also available as a separate zip-archive.

For web use, and by apps such as Adobe InDesign that support variable TrueType fonts, a 3-axis variable TrueType version of SaysetthaMai is available in .ttf and .woff2 formats. The variable font may be installed on Windows or macOS but as neither Windows nor macOS manage diacritic positioning correctly for variable fonts, it is usually better to install and use the separate SaysetthaMai font styles and use a non-installed copy of the variable font where supported by the app (e.g. Illustrator, InDesign).

SaysetthaMai uses OpenType Stylistic Set features (listed below) to provide optional alternatives for some character shapes. Note, however, that Microsoft Word does not provide any way to apply Stylistic Set features to Lao text. For a free alternative that handles Lao text correctly in Word documents, download and install LibreOffice Writer.
