Veleka is a complete modification of Charis SIL (copyrighted (c) by SIL International, 1997-2014 under SIL license).

Although Charis SIL is intended to be a multilingual font it has some limitations, which were the reason of creating the Veleka font.

What is new in the Veleka v. 1.000?

1. There is a full support for Greek in the Unicode range uni0370 : uni03CE.
2. There are two models of Cyrillic for the range uni0410 : uniuni044F (Modern Bulgarian Cyrillic and Russian Traditional Cyrillic).
3. There are two ways to switch between the modern and traditional Cyrillic (either by using locl feature for Russin language, or by using Style Set 01 feature).
4. There is a full support for Open Type features: Latin All Caps (case + cpsp), Ligatures, Discretionary Ligatures, Fractions, Ordinals, Swash, Titling Alternates, Contextual Alternates, Small Caps, All Small Caps, Slashed Zero, Stylistic Set 01, Stylistic Set 02, Superscript/Superior, Subscript/Inferior, Numerator, Denominator, Proportional Oldstyle, Proportional Lining, Tabular Oldstyle, Tabular Lining, Default Figure Style.

Aldus – le blog de livre numerique, depuis 2006: “Veleka is an excellent font for your e-readers.”

From Mind to Type: “In 1992 Bitstream donated a version of Charter to the X Consortium under terms that allowed the font to be modified and redistributed. This has resulted in several open source derivatives, including Charis SIL, an OpenType fork of it called Velleka and Michael Sharpe’s XCharter. Of all three, the one with the most OpenType features is Veleka: Charis SIL does not offer Small Caps, old style numerals nor sub-superscripts while the other two does, for example, and Veleka is the only one to offer arbitrary fractions.”

Une liseuse & des polices: “If we compare the traditional examples of text (which I put at the end of each article) of Charis SIL and Veleka, we note that Veleka seems to correct the problem of excessive interlining of Charis. This correction is to be confirmed on reading, but if this fact is confirmed, then Veleka brings a real plus.”

Adam Twardoch: Veleka is a part of Adam Twardoch’s collection of fonts: “This collection of open-source fonts includes only fonts that I (Adam Twardoch) personally consider valuable — either because they have an excellent design, large character sets, a large number of styles, or preferrably all of the above.”
