Tamil picker notes/help

Updated 25-Mar-2018 • tags apps, pickers, tamil

This Unicode character picker allows you to produce or analyse runs of Tamil 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 Tamil block.

Controls above the text area

Transliterate. Converts the contents of the text area to an ISO-15919 Latin transliteration that provides a single correspondence between each Tamil symbol and a Latin symbol. It doesn't lead to a good phonetic transcription, but the process is reversible (unlike most phonetic transcriptions). This transliteration adds inherent vowels to the output.

ISO to Tamil. Produces Tamil text from an ISO-15919 transcription.
