Apparently, Windows 10 supports pIqaD natively. I've been told this,
though I haven't confirmed it myself. However, I saw this tweet

He uses the pIqaD font found here: <>, which uses Everson's Unicode code points. Interestingly, it includes a web font. Without a corresponding input method editor, the font is of limited use. Has anybody written one?

I've got the latest Windows 10 preview build, but I don't know how he got pIqaD to appear in that Command Prompt window. There is no localization for Klingon. I suspect this was a developer's joke.

The font creator has more blog posts about Klingon on Windows here: <>
