Macintosh Cyrillic Fonts and Keyboard Drivers

This article is translated to Serbo-Croatian language by Vera Djuraskovic from Webhostinggeeks.com.*

Special Note for Mac OS 9 & X Users:

Mac 10 includes basic fonts and keyboards. For most users this is all that will be necessary. To engage the fonts and keyboards in system 10.* go to System Preferences and choose International. Choose Input Menu and you will see a long list of input options. In some cases you are provided the option of the typewriter layout of the language and a layout more user friendly to North Americans. For example, for Russian you may choose Russian which uses the typewriter layout found in Russia or Russian-Phonetic which uses the homophonic layout preferred by many Americans.
