For MkII you have to load the typescript file and the typescript yourself while for MkIV these two steps are done together with the \setupbodyfont command when the name for the typeface, typescript and file is the same (e.g. gentium and type-gentium).

\usetypescriptfile[type-gentium]
\usetypescript[gentium][texnansi]
\setupbodyfont[gentium]

\starttext
This little text is enough to demonstrate the problem.
\stoptext
