Accessibility is a pretty big deal on the Internet, Google and Monotype set out to solve a font-related problem that we often come across, that’s where some characters1 tend to appear as a “tofu” character 2
To do that they made Noto font; which stands for “No more Tofu”. Noto supports 800 languages and 100 written scripts, from Latin, Cyrillic, and Hebrew to Egyptian Hieroglyphs and Cherokee.
- mostly symbols or non-supported language characters
- That box shape that comes up when the fontset doesn't support the character typed.
