Keyboard Details

The Sabdalipi Assamese keyboard uses a phonetic-style layout, so that the key sequence for each Assamese (Unicode) character is usually the similar sounding English character, for example:

k is , g is , p is and so on.

Similarly uppercase characters are used for the deep sounding characters, for example:

K is , G is , P is and so on.

The plus '+' sign is used to create juktyakhars, for example:

typing 'l+p' would result in ল্প
typing 'j+j+b' would result in জ্জ্ব

A special key is reserved for all kaar jogs, for example:

a stands for Aakaar
u stands for Ukaar, i.e pu gives পু, ru gives ৰু and gu gives গু
y stands for rhokaar, i.e gy is গ্ৰ, ty is ত্ৰ and ky is ক্ৰ

The keyboard layout and kaar jogs are shown below.
