Hello. We have no plans to create new Kmhmu fonts. Most up-to-date Lao fonts support that language, including Noto. The Kmhmu keyboard for Keyman also includes a font. The Boonhome font is now called Boonbaan and is licensed under the SIL Open Font License, so you can modify it if it doesn’t already support Kmhmu. We are not able to easily train you in font development, as it is highly technical, but let me know your background in design and computing and I may be able to point you to online resources that can help.

Many thanks sir

can you support me about project development font kmhmu’ ?


It sounds like you want to develop a font for Kmhmu using the Khmer script rather than the Lao script. There are many OFL-licensed Khmer fonts available, including Noto, that you could use - see the Khmer font page on ScriptSource. They may even already support the letters you need.

If you want to find out more about font development in general, read Design With FontForge. That’s a good introduction and has links to other resources.

Hello, sir

Sorry but we are unable to fix your font for you. If you have a problem with the Boon Baan font please contact the developer at

Dear, sir I have modify font Boonbaan to Kmhmu’ font I change the name in kmhmu’ language is “Tawa OT” but I want to know more again , How can I add my font to google font and how to make the font can support in google Best regards,
Tawa Kuqbri

I replied in the Keyman topic where you posted a similar question, but I’ll put the same reply here:

Unfortunately we aren’t in a position to help people with developing fonts. There are multiple tools out there for drawing the fonts.

We have used FontLab, Glyphs, and FontForge for drawing the glyphs. Those are all good tools.

We always release our fonts under the Open Font License which is a well respected license. Google Fonts requires any font that it puts on Google Fonts to be released under the OFL. However, Google Fonts actually needs to want your font. As far as I know, you cannot just request them to add your font to the Google Fonts library.

We have also created a site called Font Development Best Practices that you should find helpful as you begin your journey.
