தமிழ்த் தேசியம்

"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."

- Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

An Internet workshop on using Tamil in your computer
(published here with the permission of the author in whom the copyright vests)

Ram S. Ravindran

I have been doing demonstrations to Tamil lovers in my hometown, on the software, and the setup they would need in their computers, to use Tamil in their computer and on the web. In this page, I have attempted to do it with the use of realpresenter program. I hope you like it.

It is my hope that this technique will enable more people to read and write Tamil in their computers and thereby contribute to the growth, preservation and popularisation of this language. That is the only favor, that I expect in return from you.

This program can be viewed via the Net without downloading any files or can be downloaded and viewed in your computer at your leisure.

In any case, you need to have either realaudio player version 5 or 6. This can be downloaded from http://www.real.com ...

If you wish to download the file and then play it in your computer, then click here. Keep in mind, this program is 1.8 megabytes in size. If you have slow connection , it may take a long time to download it

For suggestions, comments and questions, please contact me at rravindr@iupui.edu
