    Summary: SIL Andika New Basic, a font family for literacy and beginning readers
    Description: 
    Andika New Basic is a limited-character-set (no extended IPA or Cyrillic)
    version of Andika that includes regular, bold, italic and bold-italic faces.
    
    Andika is a sans serif, Unicode-compliant font family designed especially for
    literacy use, taking into account the needs of beginning readers. The focus is
    on clear, easy-to-perceive letter-forms that will not be readily confused with
    one another.
    
    A sans serif font is preferred by some literacy personnel for teaching people
    to read. Its forms are simpler and less cluttered than those of most serif
    fonts. For years, literacy workers have had to make do with fonts that were
    not really suitable for beginning readers and writers. In some cases, literacy
    specialists have had to tediously assemble letters from a variety of fonts in
    order to get all of the characters they need for their particular language
    project, resulting in confusing and unattractive publications. Andika
    addresses those issues.
