Hi William,William wrote:I am not sure what you are wanting from Roshan in the way of a specification.
Could you possibly produce a specification document please with a ? character in each place where you need some information from Roshan or someone else so that gradually a specification can be put together by changing each ? character for some information that you need in order to proceed please?
When I say a specification document, just some text in a post in this thread would be fine.
It is not clear to me exactly what information you need from Roshan.
sorry I didn't see your last post. Andjc answered about the requirements, and I'm quite confident that he will complete.
I don't know a single word of Indic languages except a reminder of a Sanskrit poem, and Mahatma Gandhi's autobiography has come to me in a German translation from its English translation, as it was written in Gujarati. So what to await as a specification for Tirhuta keyboard? I really don't know, but imagined that characters are mapped to keys as in Devanagari, and there are some sequences (called ligatures, as probably they display as clusters).
The clue is that where Tirhuta is used, today Devanagari is written, as stated in TUS. Thank you for the citations.
So I imagine that a Tirhuta keyboard layout must fit on a Devanagari keyboard. This is why I now think about mapping Tirhuta to Devanagari by matching the Unicode character names.
So I'll make a table and link it here, because I think that a list of 101 characters, as many as are used in Tirhuta according to TUS, is too cumbersome a post. Making it in Excel allows to export it in Word and in PDF. Word and Excel tables are fine because of their being modifiable. I use Word Starter 2010 and Excel Starter 2010, delivered as Office Starter 2010 with my netbook as I bought it in 2012.
