As my blog is India centric and i see a lot of bloggers including me writing local languages using devnagri in English script, i get kinda saddened. Frankly i cant blame these folks because trying to type say in Hindi or Marathi for that matter is extremely time consuming and irritating and a sheer torture, because the keyboard placements are a mystery to most humble souls. But Priyank, the net गुरु, showed me the way of the the master blogger and communicator who uses multiple languages to effectively communicate with all audience.
For the desi blogger , i recommend BARAHA . Baraha is a word processing application for creating documents in Indian languages. It is developed with an intention to provide a free software to enable and encourage Indians use their native languages on the computers. Baraha can be effectively used for creating documents, sending emails and publishing web pages. Baraha 7.0 supports Kannada, Devanagari, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Gujarati, Gurumukhi, Bengali, and Oriya scripts.
For most people the IME is just a fine tool and the whole application need not be downloaded. And best of all you type just like u type out normal stuff so no searching for the र or प or whatever character u want.
By that i mean if u want to say मेरा नाम रामू है . u type ‘mera nam Ramoo hai.’ THATS IT
So folks go ahead and use it, and rest assured ull simply love it.
