SignWriter Egyptology Software is a free, integrated set of Egyptian language tools. The development of this software is driven by a desire to create a self contained and feature rich application that is useful to anyone studying ancient Egyptian language. The project is not concerned with creating acurate facsimiles of Egyptian text or detailed typesetting but rather it is intended to create standardised readable texts in a uniform font.

The software is still in development but is already useful for creating, editing and reading Egyptian hieroglyphic texts. You can follow the project on TWITTER and join our FACEBOOK GROUP to keep up-to-date on new releases.
