We are pleased to announce the release of ODIA UNICODE Editor for Windows based Desktop and Internet Browsers under our Aprant Odia Community Project.
In last few months, there have been some releases from various organizations including Microsoft and Google to make ODIA user friendly , particularly on Web. But those are based on TRANSLITRATION ( It converts the English words to possible odia words ) . However we believe that , our effort in making Odia more user-friendly with maximum coverages of Juktakshyara is one step ahead.
Like our previous release this one is also very user-friendly in many ways particularly in terms of its dual Keyboard typing mode , Phonetic and Modular ( Same as Akruti and Shrilipi Keyboard ) . While the first one is addressed to laymen and who don’t have much speed on keyboard, the later one is for Professional computer operator/DTP Professionals.
“We are sure this will not only revolutionise the way Odia being used on computers and Internet but can also make life easier for many who find it hard to type Odia alphabets using the keyboard. Being it is FREE , it surely reach most of the corners of the world easily “ said Prashant K Sahoo ( Chief Executive of AP Arts International LLC, USA and Director of AP Info Arts Pvt. Ltd, Rourkela ).
