Free Pali OpenType Font

Postby Bhikkhu Pesala » Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:23 pm

I have just completed a major upgrade of my Pali OpenType font. I haven't uploaded it to my site yet as I want to get some feedback from Pāli scholars to see if anything needs fixing.

To make use of the OpenType features you will need a supporting application such as PagePlus X5 or later, Word 2010, or InDesign. Other applications can still use it for Pāli, they just won't have access to the OpenType features described in “Pali Description.txt.”

The archive uses to keep it small.

It might be best to send any feedback to rather than cluttering this sticky thread with off-topic discussion. Or start a new thread on Dhamma Wheel if you think printing of Pāli needs a discussion.

Digital Pali Reader Firefox plugin:

Among other features, you can highlight Pali text on any web page and right-click and get a translation.

Dear bhante,

I have a WinXP Professional x64 system and CST4 works perfectly for me.

Do you have the required version of the Microsoft .NET Framework? You can get it here:

Dear Dhammawheel Sangha,
after surfing, as a amateur student of pali i would like highly suggest this two:
http://www.buddha-vacana.org/glossary - by far the most complete with references to suttas
http://dictionary.tamilcube.com/pali-dictionary.aspx - online english pali or pali english.Most everything is there. With combination of Concise pali dictionary.pdf - download on the net,basically you have quite the complete resources togheter of the whole pali words.
Have a good use of it
with great Metta

I have added a brief review of the to my Software Reviews site.

If you haven't installed this software yet, please do. It's a valuable resource for studying Pāḷi, and doesn't take long to learn how to use. My review page should get you up and running in an hour or two.

now comes with , and you can delete any that you don't need to add your own, such as the PTS dictionary or Access to Insight.

Then, select any word in a PDF document (Unicode encoded Pali), to look it up in the PTS dictionary. English words can be searched just as easily.

Bhante Dhammanando, may I ask why it couldn't also be an "Early Buddhism resource"?

Pali keyboard for iPhone?

Postby not myself today » Sun Apr 10, 2016 3:30 pm

hi all. i seek The Deathless and a Pali keyboard for my iPhone. that's all i need.

oh and this ashtray.

and this chair. that's all i need...

:P

i've found an app called Unicode Map that will let me produce probably all the diacriticals used in Latin-alphabet Pali, but for each special letter i want to "type" i have to go into the Unicode Map app, tap the letter i want, which copies it to the clipboard, then return to the app i'm writing in and paste the letter where i want it...lather, rinse, repeat...it gets a bit tedious as you can imagine.

i've also found an app called Hinglish that provides a keyboard that produces some, but not all, of the Pali characters i'm looking for. naturally, my ideal would be an actual iPhone keyboard that includes all the Pali characters. anybody know of such an eAnimal?

many thanks... :anjali:
