Hello Viewer, welcome to Amader Projukti Bangla Help Page. Amaderprojukti.com is a Bangla Unicode(utf-8) compatible website designed to give ultimate user experience. Even if you can't see Amader Projukti properly or you don't have Bangla keyboard installed don't be worried, we are here to guide you through so that you can view Bangla website & write in Bangla.



Keep Smiling.......It's not too hard :D



[b][color=#BF0000]Is your system Unicode Supported??[/color][/b]



[b][color=#800000]Unicode Supported Systems:[/color][/b]

If you are running Windows Vista or Gnome (2.8 or higher) based Linux Distro or KDE (3.0.3 or higher) based Linux Distro congratulation you don't need any tweak to view Unicode supported sites since these systems are already Unicode supported.



[b][color=#800000]Systems that would need some configuration:[/color][/b]

But you say you are user of Windows XP or Mac OS X? No worry you just need a little bit (ok I confess "a bit") of configuration to properly view the site. Just few 'click' 'click' you will be ready to go.



[b][color=#BF0000]Unicode Setup in Windows XP & Mac OS X[/color][/b]



[b][color=#800000]Windows XP:[/color][/b]

To view Bengali you need to install Windows complex script to view complex Asian characters like Bengali. To install complex script Go to Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Language, and check the "Install files for complex scripts and right-to-left languages" option. You will need your Windows XP SP2 installer CD to install these new files. You can also download the complex script from [url=http://www.omicronlab.com/go.php?id=38]here[/url].



[color=#800000][b]Mac OS X:[/b][/color]

Unicode support is built into Mac OS X. You need to download and install Bangla unicode supported fonts with Apple Advance Typography (AAT) to enable it. You can download some of them from [url=http://ekushey.org/?page/osx]Ekushey.Org[/url]. To view unicode Bangla web pages use Safari as your browser. Currently Firefox/Mozilla/Camino do not support AAT. As a result you will not see Bangla properly on those browsers. To input Bangla you have to download unicode Bangla keyboard layouts. You can download some of the layouts from [url=http://ekushey.org/?page/osx]Ekushey.Org[/url].

[b][color=#BF0000]Bangla Keyboard[/color][/b]



So lets get back to how you can write Bangla right? There is two way, online web based keyboard or desktop keyboard.



[color=#800000][b]Web Based:[/b][/color]

In our site we used free web based java script [url=http://ekushey.org/projects/browser_ime/qwerty-phonetic]Phonetic[/url], [url=http://ekushey.org/projects/browser_ime/probhatunicode]Probhat[/url] and [url=http://ekushey.org/projects/browser_ime/unijoy]Unijoy[/url] keyboard layouts to write unicode bangla.Phonetic and Unijoy scripts are developed by [url=http://hasin.wordpress.com]Hasin Hayder[/url].We think that these two scripts are milestones in web based bangla computing.We like to thanks to this great phpexpert from [url=http://forum.amaderprojukti.com/amaderkatha.php]Amaderprojukti Team[/url] for free distribution of these scripts. Following these scripts [url=http://blog.manchumahara.com]Sabuj Kundu[/url] of Amaderprojukti Team developed the Probhat script. All scripts are open source projects(:D) of [url=http://ekushey.org/]ekushey.org[/url].



If you wish to write Bangla anywhere online (not only in this site) then you can use [url=http://service.somewherein.net/bangla-editor/]somewhereinblog keyboard[/url] or for few layout option try [url=http://trivuz.com/bangla/tpp.php]TrivuZ notepad[/url].



[color=#800000][b]Desktop keyboard:[/b][/color]

Avro by [url=http://www.omicronlab.com/]omicronlab[/url]: [url=http://www.omicronlab.com/avro-keyboard-download.html]avro[/url] and [url=http://www.omicronlab.com/portable-avro-keyboard.html]avro portabale[/url].

Avro manual is here in pdf format.



On most Linux Distro you have probhat layout built-in to use on your desktop (as well as online).



To use probhat keyboard on windows get instruction from [url=http://ekushey.org/?page/probhat_layout]here[/url].
