Software for using Assamese in Unicode compatible format

Press Trust of India  |  Tezpur(Assam) 

The software, developed by Navanath Saharia and Kishori Mohan Konwar, has been purely designed for writing only Assamese text and facilitates writing Assamese text based on the phonetics of a word instead of phonetics of individual characters.

The software is entirely Unicode compatible and there is the provision to add new words to its integrated dictionary, Saharia, who is research scholar working on computational linguistics in the context of Assamese language told reporters here today.

Luitpad automatically predict words after typing the first couple letters and this prevents spelling mistakes, said Konwar, a computer scientist specialising in supercomputing and machine learning.

Luitpad is compatible with both Microsoft Window and Linux operating systems and addresses all the existing difficulties faced by anyone writing Assamese text on a computer, the duo said.
