Greek Keys
a product that has been providing easy keyboard input and specialized fonts for scholars of ancient (polytonic) Greek since 1984. For most of its history it has been a Macintosh-only product and until a few years ago it exploited a custom encoding for polytonic Greek that was widely used, but is incompatible with modern standards. From the time of the release of GreekKeys 2005 for Mac OS X, GreekKeys fonts and keyboards have supported instead the use of Unicode as the proper standard for polytonic Greek. Be sure to look at the “What’s New” column on the right.
