Input Schemes and Keyboard Layouts

For typing in Urdu on Windows platforms, the SALRC recommends the following options:

  • Windows XP/Vista Keyboard Layout: Microsoft Windows XP includes keyboard layouts for typing with Urdu Unicode fonts through the installation of its optional multilingual support. Follow the instructions about 'Enabling South Asian Language Support' and 'Activating Keyboard Layouts' on the 'How to Install Fonts and Layouts' page (in the left navigation bar). The keyboard may be viewed with the On-screen Keyboard Viewer (Start > Program Files > Utilities > Accessibility > On Screen Keyboard). As the default Urdu keyboard is not phonetic, many users may prefer to install a phonetic one (see below).
  • The Center for Research in Urdu Language Processing provides a Urdu Phonetic Keyboard for Windows . This keyboard is phonetic and like the InPage keyboard. Follow the instructions above about how to enable South Asian language support before installing this keyboard.
  • OpenOffice.org: A free, open-source office suite project that is Unicode-savvy, OpenType enabled, and able to run on Linux/Sparc, Mac OS X (with X11), and all modern Windows platforms, including Windows 95.

Rendering issues: Mac vs. PC

The fonts recommended on this page have been tested for functionality on PCs running Windows XP. They are unsuitable for use with Macintosh computers, because they make use of OpenType technology, developed jointly by Microsoft and Adobe, for displaying vowel signs (matras) and ligatures appropriately. While OS X also recognizes OpenType layout tables, it uses a different rendering engine (ATSUI), and these fonts are written for Microsoft's engine (called Uniscribe).

Perso-Arabic scripts are supported from OS X (10.3.x), with the optional installation of additional language support. Using the Mac's own Arabic Unicode fonts, the user will be able to view Urdu-encoded websites using Safari and to produce Unicode-compliant documents using TextEdit. However, support is limited to applications like TextEdit and Safari. Kamal Abdali's Urdu on the Mac webpage provides instructions on how to enable Urdu and also provides a phonetic keyboard.

These fonts will probably work on most Linux systems, either now or in the future.
