This Unicode character picker allows you to produce or analyse runs of text using the Latin script. Character pickers are especially useful for people who don't know a script well, as characters are displayed in ways that aid identification.
To properly display the text you will need to choose a font that is loaded on your system or device or use one of the web fonts downloaded with the page. I recommend downloading the free Doulos SIL font. If you don't have that font on your system, the page will try to download a WOFF2 version, which may slow down the initial page load, given the size of the Latin character repertoire. Note that fonts aren't guarranteed to work on every system/device, because the font often relies on rendering algorithms provided by the operating system.
You can also add codepoints and escapes via the "Add codepoint" field (hit return to add to the output field). You can also paste text into the output field to get information about it. Use the yellow boxes to set preferences or search. Regular expressions are allowed when searching – for example, to find characters with the word KA in their name, enter \bka\b, or the short form :ka:.
Autofocus. This prevents the keyboard popping up after you input every character. You may also need to select a character twice to add it to the output field.
<span class="ex" lang="en">tiếng Việt</span> <span class="ipa">tĭəŋ vìəˀt</span> <span class="meaning">Vietnamese</span>
<span class="uname">ệ LATIN SMALL LETTER E WITH CIRCUMFLEX AND DOT BELOW</span> (<span lang="en">ệ</span>)
CC basecontrol allows you to specify a base character that will be used before each combining character (or no base character). This should hopefully help for most font and browser combinations.
