Noto Naskh Arabic is an updated version of Droid Naskh Arabic with added languages support and fixed errors.
You can download the fonts from the Google Noto Fonts web page.
Droid Naskh is an Arabic type designed in 2010 for use in Google™ products such as Google Chrome™ and Android™. Designed to complement the Latin, Greek and Cyrillic provided in the Droid Serif family, the Arabic matches the color, alignment and design detail of the Droid Serif allowing them to be used together for multi-lingual typesetting. This Naskh style is optimized for reading Arabic script on screen.
Droid Naskh was designed in collaboration with Ascendercorp and Google to ensure that all requirements for a screen and web font are met. Google performed several surveys and tests on the fonts during the design and development process.
Droid Arabic Naskh is now shipping with the latest Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. Droid Arabic Naskh can be downloaded from the Google Font Directory for all online web usage and mobile applications.
Droid Naskh covers all the basic and extended Arabic glyphs set to cover all the languages that use the Arabic script like Persian, Urdu, Pashto, and others.
The large ‘loop height’ and ‘tooth height’ help prevent readers from having to zoom web pages to a larger size in order to read them. The traditional Naskh forms are softened for less formal documents such as periodicals and journals. The letterforms structures are based on the calligraphic grammatical rules of the Naskh writing style while drawn with a contemporary feel.
A print version of the fonts is being developed at the moment with more calligraphic proportional ascender and descender heights. The Latin counterpart Droid Serif will be incorporated within the fonts to allow bi-script typesetting.
Pascal Zoghbi designed the Arabic letters, while Steve Matteson from AscenderCorp designed the Latin Letters.
