N'Ko is an African writing system, which was invented in 1949 by Soulemayne edge from Kankan, Guinea. Born in 1922 edge was bothered that some stranger Africa deemed uncivilized because it has no native writing system.
The N'Ko font is used mainly in Guinea, Mali and the Ivory Coast for the languages Maninka, Bambara and Jula. It is written from right to left.
Since autumn 2006 N'Ko is in the Unicode Standard 5.0, and thus in the future with the latest operating systems on all computers in the world available (see also Unicode block N'Ko ).
