What others are saying What others are saying


LaserHindi Sanskrit® in Unicode™ for Windows® or Macintosh® provides two professional-quality Unicode-encoded fonts in TrueType® OpenType® format, in plain, bold, italic, and bold-italic weights, for typing modern Hindi and classical Sanskrit. The HindiLSU™ and SanskritLSU™ fonts include the complete Devanagari section of the Unicode Standard, providing fonts that are fully compatible with other standard Hindi fonts. LaserHindi Sanskrit in Unicode includes two keyboard layouts (Phonetic and Traditional) that provide four characters per key (instead of the normal two) for easy input of Hindi and Sanskrit. The keyboard layouts take advantage of the OpenType layout features built into the fonts for logical, intuitive input. These features include automatic conjunct formation and automatic vowel positioning as you type. For example, typing "kal" produces the "kla" conjunct, or typing "ki" produces "ik". Long and short "u" vowels are also automatically positioned with the previous consonant. This allows the typist to think and type phonetically while the OpenType features properly arrange the characters.

The HindiLSU and SanskritLSU fonts are essentially the same, except HindiLSU contains some conjuncts that are more horizontal, whereas SanskritLSU contains conjuncts that are more vertically arranged.

SanskritLSU also has more delicate forms of the udatta and double udatta, though both fonts will produce these marks.
