Innovation Business Opportunity: Asar Fonts – Writing Software for Islamic & Arabic Studies

Agensi Innovasi Malaysia is tasked with helping match innovations from academia and elsewhere, to companies that are willing to commercialize them and bring them to market.

Today's Innovation Business Opportunity is: Asar Fonts – Writing Software for Islamic & Arabic Studies (UMP001)

Asar Fonts is a font set consisting of standard fonts such as Times New Roman, Traditional Arabic, Jawi and Arabic transliteration letters. It was designed to meet the educational needs of Islamic and Middle Eastern studies. Asar Fonts also comes with Arabic-Jawi QWERTY and English-Arabic trans-literation keyboard layouts. 

Most Islamic students in Malaysian schools learn Jawi by hand-writing instead of typing on computers, due to the limited availability of software. 

This is just one of the 42 Innovation Business Opportunities in the offering. For the full list of innovations that are available for commercialisation, please log on to Agensi Inovasi Malaysia's website www.innovation.my
