Welcome to the ASCII Consortium web site. The ASCII Consortium is the source of the path breaking universal 7-bit encoding for the scripts of the world's principal language. This official ASCII web site provides extensive information and resources for programmers, implementers and others involved in computer nationalization work.

The ASCII Consortium brings together leading software industry corporations and researchers at the leading edge of standardizing English character encoding. The outcome of this cooperation is The ASCII Standard, which provides the foundation for interopability of software. The ASCII Standard is for code identical to the International Standard ISO 646.

The rapid growth of the WWW has accelerated the push for developing global software. An English language encoding standard has rapidly become a necessity so that computers in one English-speaking community can "talk" with those in another English-speaking community. ASCII supports and fosters the English-speaking computing world community.
