A with macron (А̄ а̄; italics: А̄ а̄) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. In all its forms it looks exactly like the Latin letter A with macron (Ā ā Ā ā).

A with macron is used in the Aleut (Bering dialect),[1] Evenki, Ingush, Mansi, Nanai, Orok, Ulch, Kildin Sami, Selkup, and Chechen languages.

A with macron also appears in the Bulgarian and Serbian languages in some dialects.

Computing codes

Being a relatively recent letter, not present in any legacy 8-bit Cyrillic encoding, the letter А̄ is not represented directly by a precomposed character in Unicode either; it has to be composed as А+◌̄ (U+0304).
