Recently learned via a post by MultiLingual's Donna Parrish on Twitter that "Microsoft Language Portal updated with Windows 10 translations." Checked out their Language Portal, and found that they've got terms in 11 African languages including Igbo. The others are Amharic, Hausa, Kinyarwanda, Setswana, Swahili, Tigrinya, Wolof, Xhosa, Yoruba, and Zulu.

A quick perusal of Igbo translations of English terms shows use of the subdot characters and accents. Am not able to determine if this is consistent (can anyone else verify?).

Chima 4 real, "ICT" stands for "information and communication technology" in English. I personally don't know the translation into Igbo, and had no luck finding the term with a quick online search. Maybe someone else can help.

Chinedu (re /m1067 ), I certainly wouldn't be the one to know, but just to see I looked online. No answer, but noted several online Igbo <-> English dictionaries of which the first two below might be working off of the same database? (They also have other language options.) Note the full use of subdot characters, but no tones:
