Gurmukhi picker notes/help

Updated 30-Mar-2018 • tags apps, pickers, gurmukhi

This Unicode character picker allows you to produce or analyse runs of Gurmukhi text. Character pickers are especially useful for people who don't know a script well, as characters are displayed in ways that aid identification.

If something is broken or missing raise an issue. For version information see the Github commit list.

About the chart

Includes characters in the Unicode Gurmukhi block, plus [U+262C ADI SHAKTI].

Controls above the text area

Transliterate. Converts the contents of the text area to a Latin transliteration that provides a single correspondence between each Gurmukhi symbol and a Latin symbol. It doesn't lead to a good phonetic transcription, but the process is reversible (unlike most phonetic transcriptions).

The transliteration is based on ISO 15919, but ʰ is used for aspirated consonants, to avoid ambiguity.
