LaserAkkadian features two input systems coordinated with the five Akkadian fonts for use in Microsoft Word for Windows which allows the complete set of signs to be typed without changing fonts. In Word, you select a glossary for either the basic reading of each sign or its sign number, and then follow the chart included in the LaserAkkadian for Windows User's Manual. Two other input methods are included for use in programs other than Word.

Seven erasure symbols (a faded block) are included. Besides the full erasure symbol are overstrike keys, each with automatic non-deleting backspacing, designating erasure of the following portions of signs: front, rear, upper front, lower front, upper rear, and lower rear erasure. The reconstructed portions of the erasures are legible underneath the erasure symbol overstrikes. Includes the User's Manual with the complete list of input key positions either by font or by glossary input code.

LaserAkkadian for Windows is ASCII-compatible with LaserAkkadian for the Macintosh.
