Thaana picker notes/help

Updated 13-Mar-2018 • tags apps, pickers, thaana

This Unicode character picker allows you to produce or analyse runs of Dhivehi text using the Thaana script. 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 all the characters in the Unicode Thaana block.

Controls above the text area

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

Maldivian Latin. Converts the contents of the text area to a transcription based on the Latin standard for Maldivian. Note that this is not automatically reversible.

Input aids

Latin/Arabic to Thaana. Displays a panel that allows you to generate Thaana text from Maldivian Latin. For symbols that represent Arabic sounds, you should click on the Arabic script letters shown.
