Tamil in computers – Facts

  • You can type, read Tamil in any computer with any operating system like Windows, Mac, Linux.
  • You don’t need to buy any software or new keyboard to type in Tamil. You get free softwares to do it and you can use the same qwerty / asdf English keyboard that you have to type in Tamil. You don’t even need to have stickers of tamil letters on your keyboard to memorize the Tamil keyboard layout. Just looking at a print out of Tamil keyboard for 2 days would help you memorize.
  • Typing ammaa to get ????? is not the only way to type in Tamil. That is called anjal / romanised / thaminglish keyboard. You have more and better ways to type in Tamil. I recommend Tamil99 keyboard layout.
  • You can type in Tamil in any computer application – Both off line and online.
  • You can have a free and complete Tamil interface for your computer if you use Linux.
  • You can name your files and folders in Tamil.
  • You can print Tamil documents without any problem.
  • You can search the internet in Tamil in any of the search engines like Google, Yahoo.
  • You can write and publish websites in Tamil.
  • You can send and receive emails in Tamil.
  • To read Tamil you don’t need to install any fonts.

You can but only if you will !
