My friend Phil Dow created software called UniGreek that runs on a local computer instead of on the web. Version 1 of the software is available for the Windows and Mac operating systems. (If you have a Mac, version 2 of the software is also available: it includes many great features such as saving files, integration with Perseus, and much more.)

Antioch (Microsoft Word Extension)

Antioch is an extension for Microsoft Word which allows you to type classical Greek, Hebrew, and Coptic characters. This program is not free, but it is very useful. It includes fully programmable Greek and Hebrew keyboards, a simple and flexible system for handling diacritics and vowel points, and converters for documents in many other formats.

SophoKeys (Mac Only)

I do not have a Mac, so I have never used SophoKeys. It seems to be an application that converts beta code keystrokes into Unicode Greek, like TypeGreek, but it runs locally on a Mac. (I have been told that it also has an additional keyboard mapping other than beta code.) If you have used SophoKeys and have any feedback, please let me know!

Unicode Charts

Unicode is a character encoding standard that uses two bytes instead of one, providing plenty of characters for international character sets. Visit the official unicode.org web site for more information. The following links show the detailed information for the Greek characters created by TypeGreek:
