What Is It?

VedicVidya Keyboards Installation Package is comprised of two separate “virtual” keyboards, fonts and a PDF manual. Both virtual keyboards overlay the Devanagari and transliteration characters atop the characters of the standard English keyboard. This allows users to compose any combination of Sanskrit, Hindi, or transliteration straight from an English keyboard.


For The Community

Vedic Vidya Institute presents these two keyboard layouts for the greater good of the Sanskrit/Hindi community. As the digital age brings the East and West closer together, the need for communication tools that maintain the integrity of language is becoming more crucial.

Though the Sanskrit/Hindi community has adapted through the development of technology, much of it has proved difficult to use and too complicated for the typical user.

Why Free?

Our motivation for creating these keyboards is to enrich Sanskrit/Hindi communication and scholarship.
