An Online Tamil Keyboard to type tamil from anywhere...

I have often found myself unable to write tamil from cyber cafes. Many cybercafes dont have tamil input software installed in their computers. To address this problem i wrote a javascript utility for typping tamil and have hosted in my developer.thamizha.com site.

I have named it as Online Tamil Keyboard. URL for Online Tamil Keyboard : http://developer.thamizha.com/tamilkey.html

As of now I have given option for two keyboard layouts
1. Anjal layout - This is most popular keyboard among tamils who havent learned Tamil typewriter or Tamilnet99 keyboards.

2. Tamilnet99 keyboard layout - This is the keyboard recognised by Tamil Nadu Government. Using this keyboard we can type tamil very fast. I personally use this.

I plan to add Bamini keyboard (which is popular among Srilankan Tamils) and TamilTypewriter layout (which is popular among those who have learned Tamil Typewriter) in future.

And this only works in Firefox browser as of now. I am trying to figure out a way to make it work in Internet Explorer (I would greatly appreciate if any one helped me on this ).

I hope this Online Tamil Keyboard page would be helpful in some way to Tamil users :)

தமிழ் பேச எழுத தெரியாது என்பது இன்றைய சமுதாயத்தின் ஒரு தகுதியாக கருதப்படுகின்ற இந்த காலத்தில் ... தமிழை தமிழால் எங்கிருந்தும் எழுத ஒரு புதிய உண்மையான தமிழ் வழி, கிளிக்கெழுதி !!! இதை உபயோகிப்பதற்கு தமிழ் தட்டெழுத்துத் தட்டோ ஆங்கிலமோ தெரிந்திருக்க தேவையில்லை. :-)
