Talapatram is a Microsoft Windows based software for displaying dynamic on-screen keyboard layouts for all widely used Indian Languages, like, Bengali, English, Farsi, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu. It is also a text editor where you can Type, Edit and Save text in any combinations of the Indian Languages mentioned above.

You TYPE DIRECTLY in the language you wanted. It is not a transliterator where you type in English for the software to translate that english text into your language. This type of transliterating is not a natural way of entering text, in any language. Using Talapatram you can DIRECTLY type in any of the languages mentioned above. It is a Virtual Keyboard for Indian Languages. Know More.

  • It is the First Ever Low-Cost Desktop Application which provides on-screen Indian Languages' Keyboard Layouts along with the ability to edit and save text.

  • Keyboard Layouts that Talapatram displays are the standard keyboard layouts that are used all over the world for those respective languages. For example, keyboard layout for Hindi in 'Talapatram' is same as keyboard layout that used to be for Hindi mechanical TypeWriter machines.
