The Biggest Solution in Tamil Computing - Viruppappadi
What is Viruppappadi?
Amongst all the Indian languages Tamil and Hindi are the mostly used languages for Computing. The development of Tamil Computing over the decades has resulted in the creation of more than 100 Font Families, with about 2000 individual fonts. For example TAM Family has around 200 Fonts. In addition to these plethora of fonts we also have 17 keyboard layouts for Tamil Computing. VIRUPPAPPADI Software will enable you to Compute in Tamil easily in any Keyboard Layout using any of the hundreds of fonts of your choice.
This Technology has incorporated in itself, all the commonly used 17 keyboard layouts. As all the hundreds and thousands of Tamil Fonts are based on any one of the above 18 layouts you can use any font(s) of your choice in any software (Page maker, Corel draw, etc.,) while computing in Tamil.
To facilitate easy Tamil computing for both who know and do
not know Tamil typewriting, we have incorporated Transliteration
Keyboard Layout. As a result both the initiated and the uninitiated in
Tamil computing can enjoy creating files/document, E-mailing, Internet
chatting etc., In addition to the above facilities you can copy files
/documents from other computers and edit / correct those files in the
Font and Keyboard layout of your choice.
Every one of the hundred and above Tamil Font families has been created with individual encoding. Hence unless you have the encoding software of that particular Font family with you, further processing of the files / documents you have downloaded from another computer / Website / E-mail becomes impossible. In the absence of the Font family software, you can only view the files and documents. This, many a time acts as severe constraint in free and easy dissemination of information in the present digital era.
VIRUPPAPPADI Software Technology has been created as a powerful antidote for all the above said constraints. As 116 Tamil Font families and their keyboard layouts have all been incorporated in VIRUPPAPPADI Software Technology, these acts as a common platform. As results you can process further all the files / documents you have downloaded from another computer / Website / E-mail. Previously you could only view / print and had to send back the files / documents to those from whom we have received those files / documents, but hereafter you can avoid this and treat them as text files. This facility is applicable in MS Office, Excel, Power Point, MS Publisher, Adobe Page maker…………. Etc.,
As said earlier proliferation of more than 100 Tamil Font families, each based on any one of the Keyboard layouts has been seen as road block in achieving the broader objective of easy and faster dissemination of information. We all know that English computing does not pose any problem of fonts or layouts. Dissemination of the huge amount of data / information is achieved with just the click of the mouse. The main objective of dissemination of information in Tamil through the digital medium will be better served through VIRUPPAPPADI Software Technology as in English. Viruppappadi software Technology enables you to enjoy most of the facilities you have in English computing. This facility you can enjoy in any of the software MS Office, Excel, Power Point, MS Publisher, Adobe Page maker…………. etc.,
Lingual Auto Correction
At present this particular facility is available in English computing in MS Word , Corel Draw and some other softwares(Word Processors). In English this facility will available only in that particular software and can't be availed in other software. On the other hand Viruppappadi Technology can be used in any Software , any Font and also using any Keyboard Layout. for ex: thamil will auto correct as thamizh(தமில் will become தமிழ்)
Every computer user would have installed quite a number of Tamil Fonts over the period of time. That way, many may not even be aware of the number / name of the fonts they have with them, as they may be repeatedly using only a few of those fonts.
VIRUPPAPPADI Software Technology groups all the fonts you have according to their families. This facility will be a boon to any operator. Normally an operator has to open every one of the fonts he has installed, for using in text / heading / subheading etc., As he / she can view only one font at a time, the whole exercise of selection of font(s) may take around 10 – 15 minutes. As every one of us is hard pressed for time the operator may view only those 10 – 15 fonts which are in the top order, though he / she may have more than 100 Fonts. As such only 10% – 15% of the fonts we have are utilized. Anybody would like to use the variety of fonts with them. But lack of time is a constraint. None of us can dole out time to others. VIRUPPAPPADI Software Technology is designed in such a way that you can view at a time in your screen 20 individual fonts. The whole exercise of selection of fonts from among 100 – 200 fonts, through viewing our way can be accomplished in a matter of 2 -3 minutes.
