Uses Unicode: This allows data interchange between applications using cut and paste and other Windows standard mechanisms. Other non-Unicode solutions do not give this portability as the character-mapping for each font is vendor-dependent and can change without notice.
Consistent: Our input method supports many popular Input schemes. We support ITRANS across all supported Indian languages. ITRANS is consistent across all Indian languages. That is, a user familiar with typing using this method (in any language) can do the same in any other language without re-learning the character sequence.
Comprehensive: Our solution is not application specific. Our software directly speaks with OS in a standard manner and so can be used across all applications on SuSe,RedHat,Debian.
Standard: Xinput is similar to other international input schemes that use the same standards for example Japanese, Chinese etc.,
Compact: This software has a small footprint as it uses Xlib Library for fast and efficient transformation from English character sequence to the respective Indian language.
