GeezEdit

GeezEdit ግዕዝኤዲት is an Ethiopic word processor for Windows developed by ABSHA/ECS of Colorado. It is a novel, simple and efficient typing tool to render the more than 563 Ethiopic glyphs with a maximum of two keystrokes each.  It is invented by Dr. Aberra Molla, / ኣበራ ሞላ the Ethiopian scientist who also computerized Ethiopic.

Ethiopic or Geez is an ancient Ethiopian alphabet that has been in use for thousands of years. It was written manually until the printing press was introduced at the beginning of 1900. In the 1980s Dr. Aberra Molla computerized Ethiopic in DOS for the first time by assigning each glyph a separate code and by introducing a new method of typing each character with two keystrokes..

By 2002 the set has been expanded and included in Unicode. GeezEdit is one software that uses Dr. Aberra Molla's invention of rendering the more than 563 Ethiopic glyphs on computers with one or two keystrokes each in various applications. This method is virtually similar to typing English alphabet on computers. This is the best and simplest typing method that expanded the power of the computer keyboard to dozens of keyboards.

A free patent-pending version of this novel typing method in Amharic alphabet and language with GeezEdit is available at http://freetyping.geezedit.com. The free online version is to type in Amharic in Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. There is no need to install fonts or keyboard drivers to type in Amharic. The free typing page also allows Google, Yahoo and Bing search in Amharic, አማርኛ, for the first time. The screen can also be used as a test page for Amharic in that Ethiopic Unicode documents appear as Ethiopic when pasted to the page. The web site is to give Amharic users the power to type in their own alphabet and English and paste the documents in other applications. This is another milestone in the history of the script and the Amharic language as anyone with internet access can now freely type in Amharic. The availability of free Geez fonts has made it simple to print.  In 2010 the free web site was visited more than 100,000 times. The page can also be accessed by cell phones with Android OS at the free site or from http://s158249154.onlinehome.us/mobile/

In 1988 Dr. Aberra Molla presented an Amharic document on AIDS for the first time when there were only about a thousand cases in Ethiopia. He later published the same document in the Ethiopian Review Magazine in 1991. In 1994 he freely gave out a GeezEdit Amharic Parts font so that Amharic readers download the font and read his document on AIDS, though this has since been replaced with newer font formats. In spite of these efforts AIDS managed to affect millions of Ethiopians.
