Android'de Köktürükçe Desteği için Google'a ve Samsung'a Yazdığım E-posta

Apple'ıŋ IOS 9.0 sürümünden sonra IPhone ve IPad kullanıcıları Göktürk harflerini görebilirken Android kullanıcıları hâlâ göremiyor (ve ben görebilmek için birçok entrika üretmek zorunda kalıyorum). Ben de Google'uŋ ve Samsung'uŋ font bölümüne defalarca aşağıdaki e-postayı yazdım:

Subject: Old Turkic support (10C00 - 10C48)

Dear Google, Dear Samsung,

Starting with Unicode 5.2, Old Turkic script is included in Unicode standard: http://unicode.org/charts/PDF/U10C00.pdf. Windows 10's Segoe UI Historic, Google's Noto Sans Old Turkic (https://www.google.com/get/noto/#sans-orkh) and many other fonts support Old Turkic. The Old Turkic font from Noto (NotoSansOldTurkic-Regular.ttf) has been available in AOSP since Marshmallow: https://android.googlesource.com/platform/external/noto-fonts/+/64b067c2f441336f3796d37603d9880a1bfadfd8. Even though Old Turkic has been in the AOSP distribution, but it has not been included in the default configuration actually shipping on devices. So Old Turkic characters cannot be shown unless vendors explicitly opt-in.

I was using my custom Unicode Old Turkic font in KitKat, but I can no longer change the system font with a custom font in both Marshmallow and Nougat.

Noto Sans Old Turkic is free by Google and Samsung can add it to system font.

While Iphone and IPad show Old Turkic characters after IOS 9 update, Samsung and other Android phones still have not being able to show.

So, please fix this problem by adding Old Turkic characters to Samsung system font or Samsung Sans font as soon as possible (in Firmware updates or Samsung Sans font in Samsung market)

Thank you,
Best Regards,
