MUST BE ANDROID 4.4+, AND MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL FONT PACKAGE
Please download a Noto Font with the following app. After installing the new font and changing settings, you may need to restart your phone.
** We are currently working on compatibility with all Android devices. Because some letters from the Lakota alphabet are not included in Android's System Font design, we cannot make changes without a direct response from Android developers. Android will need to add new glyphs (Ǧ and Ȟ) to the System Font. Please be patient. **
