Surat Bisaya    Surat Bisaya

Surat Bisaya was devised in September 2012 by Zurocha from the Philippines. It is based primarily on Baybayin as in the Bisaya Hervas font, but also has major influences from Badlit, Hanunuo and Akopito's Suwat Bisaya. It is named Surat Bisaya because it was developed first and foremost for the Bisaya (Cebuano) language (the Kana dialect to be specific,) but also supports Tagalog, Japanese, Okinawan and most Philippine languages that follow the same phonetic structure as Bisaya, Waray and Tagalog.
