Keyboards for Devanagari Script

Keyman: Devanagari Winscript - NLCI

This Keyboard mimics the Devanagari WinScript Keyboard Layout designed by NLCI in 1988. Several linguists and members of translation community are still using this keyboard layout for keyboarding the text. This is a phonetic based keyboarding system designed with the objective of keyboarding text with minimal keystrokes. Keys are also layed out according the frequency of occurance, yet mostly follow a phonetic-based keyboarding system.

  • Does this keyboard include all the short vowels that are rarely used in Indo-Aryan languages? If so, perhaps we should list a shortcoming like this: Languages that don't need the short vowels (such as ऎ and ऒ) may find this layout too cumbersome.

Otherwise, perhaps suggest it as an alternative to the WinScript layout for languages not requiring the short vowels.
