Avro Keyboard is the first free ANSI- and Unicode-compliant Bangla language keyboard for Windows, Ubuntu and other Linux keyboards.
Best Bangla Typing Keyboard
The existing release supports phonetic English to Bangla typing for home users, Bangla mouse-based typing for professionals and newbies, and a conventional Bangla typing-based keyboard layout. Some of the keyboard layouts added are Munir Optima, Probhat, Bornona, Avro Easy and Jatiya. Avro Keyboard supports the majority of English to Bangla modern phonetic typing methods. The transliteration scheme is designed for both friendly typing speed and memorising. There is a floating preview window that lets you see how English text gets converted to Bangla. The phonetic typing method supports auto correct feature and a dictionary that comprises close to 150,000 Bangla words. By the way, the auto correct feature is user-editable.
Flexible and Intuitive Interface
Avro Keyboard’s interface is flexible and intuitive enough for Bangla users who have never used a computer before. There is also no need to resort to the control panel to edit system language. Avro Keyboard can co-exist with other language keyboards. In other words, you can use English (UK and US), Hindi, French, Japanese or any other system language keyboard in conjunction with Avro. The majority of Bangla typing software provide a keyboard interface that’s based only on system tray. Avro, on the contrary, has two completely functional and different interfaces. And you choose the mode of your choice. There are certain key combinations that make switching between the two seamless.
